Over the 25th and 26th of July 2020, I will be running from Carlisle to Newcastle along the Hadrians Wall path, to raise money for the Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Hospitals Trust. If you would like to donate to support the cause, you can do so here. Thank you to all those who have generously done so already.
But as well as supporting financially, why not join me for a section of the run? Below, I show the very approximate mileages and times for points you could join and leave. Come and do a section that suits you! Be aware that I plan to go very slowly, walk all the hills, and take plenty of stops. You’ll need to organise your own transport.
If you are going to come and join, please could send me a message before the day to make sure we have each other’s mobile numbers and I know where to look out for you. Also, if you do come and enjoy part of this run, then please help by donating a little or asking your nearest and dearest to do so. It’s not about me, it’s about a good cause.
