Take part in the Bupa Great North Run 2012 with anti-poverty charity ActionAid
The world’s biggest half marathon is taking place on Sunday 16 October this year. ActionAid is asking anyone who wants to take on the running challenge to sign up now and do their bit in the fight against global poverty at the same time.
The 13.1 mile route takes runners from the heart of Newcastle, across the world-famous Tyne Bridge and towards the picturesque coast of South Shields, where the race ends. During the run, participants will be cheered on by thousands of spectators, live bands and special flyover by the Red Arrows.
Whether this is your first run or you are a seasoned pro, running for ActionAid is a fantastic way to have fun, get fit and raise much-needed funds. For 40 years, the anti-poverty charity has worked with poor and marginalised communities to help eradicate poverty by overcoming the injustice and inequality that causes it.
As an ActionAid runner, you will be supported from the start of your training to the finish line. You will be supplied with unbeatable advice on nutrition and training and, although you will be required to raise a minimum sponsorship of £350, you will have access to our extensive fundraising community and be provided with fundraising ideas and materials. You will even be supplied with your own special ActionAid running vest.
Places fill up quickly, so sign up now. For further information, log onto www.actionaid.org.uk/running or call 01460 238 047
