Great North Run Weekend

Posted by on Sep 6, 2018 in News | No Comments

The Great North Run is always a big event in Team Belveccio’s calendar and this year is no exception.  On Saturday 8th September it is the return of Mini Team Belveccio who take on the 1.5k Mini GNR course, the UK’s biggest kids running event.  We have some children who will be doing this run for the first time and also last year’s team are all making a return to show us how it’s done!

On Sunday 9th September it’s the big one, the Great North Run.  The world’s biggest half marathon will take Team Belveccio and the rest of the 60,000 participants on a 13.1 mile journey from the centre of Newcastle to the coast in South Shields.  A big favourite for the fund.  This year we have organised a cheering squad at the 8 mile mark who will be supporting and encouraging all of our fund runners and all those running for the MNDA.  If you have any spare time on Sunday and would like to come and help rally the troops, everyone is welcome and any support is greatly appreciated.gnr
