As part of my Newcastle Can initiative, I’ve taken the plunge and, on Saturday 9th of September, I’ll be taking part in the Great North 5k!
We’ve been working with the Great North Run team and, as well as sharing lots of tips and advice for getting ready for a 5k, they have also given us our very own Newcastle Can wave. This means that on the day we can all set off together at the same time, and complete the 5k in true Newcastle Can spirit, helping each other along the way and having some fun as we do so.
If you fancy joining me in Newcastle for this 5k, simply register for the event
, and select the Newcastle Can wave.
If you're a bit unsure (as I am!) about running that far (or jogging or walking it), please don’t worry - we've got lots of advice from the experts which we’ll be sending to everyone who signs up, and we'll be supporting one another on the day. Together we can all cross the finish line!
Up for it? Register for the event
(remember to tick ‘yes’ for the Newcastle Can wave).
If you live in Newcastle (or have an NE postcode) and haven’t yet signed up to Newcastle Can, then please do so at
I hope to see you down at the Newcastle Quayside on September 9th. It’s going to be a great day.
