We don’t normally do promotion or advertising on this blog, and I’ve turned down offers of sponsorship, but I feel like this case deserves a special mention. Mark Allison, a Geordie lad, is running across the United States next year for Charity. It’s difficult to comprehend just how far that is, and the total distance is 3,100 miles. When you think of how far it is from John O’Groats to Lands End (874 miles) you begin to realise the scope of the task that is being undertaken.
Mark is running on behalf of St Benedict’s Hospice and The Children’s Foundation.
If you have a spare tenner, you can donate to one of the two charities mentioned above by going to the Run Geordie Run website. The donation links are on the right hand-side.
