    Hi, I have signed up to do the Great north run in October :? :shock:

    I cant run (do a great impression of pheobe on friends) and I am unfit and slightly overweight but Ive started to eat properly and Ive been walking more due to Gall bladder problems so I thought doing this would give me something to aim for.

    Plus, Im running to raise money for Leukemia!

    Anyway, I wondered if anyone else was doing it as it would be great to meet up with anyone on the day and possible train together if we live close enough.
    I know its probably a long shot but thought it was worth a try!!!

    Wish me luck :? :lol:

    How far is the run?

    I've just signed up to do the Women's Mini Marathon here in Dublin, Ido it every year for Action Breast Cancer. It's a 10k and I don't run, I walk - along with over a million other women who do it every year. It's a great day and you get a medal at the end etc! I'm doing it for my MOM!

    Hi,

    The great north run is half a marathon...so 13 miles!! :shock:

    I live near Richmond, a little village on the scotch corner side!. Not far from wendsleydale really.

    Its 1st October in Sunderland. Yes you can walk it but I will try and run as I dont want to come in last!!! I am hoping to do race for life in Darlington aswell. Will be a breeze compared to North run!!! :? :lol: :oops:

    My sister used to live near Richmond, in Cattrick. Loved Richmond, so pretty there. She now lives in Darlington.

    You all make me feel lazy :(
