Me and my brother Sam are taking part in this year's Great North Run. 
This year we have decided to spread out across the course as Sam pushes for a sub 1hr30 personal best... although it might be an excuse to get away from my constant "are we nearly there" nagging! 
I am also hoping to beat my personal best time... but I will be happy to finish it provided I make 2nd place in the "Fugill" category.

Event details

Great North Run

So why are we taking part in this half marathon (that's 13.1 long miles I have to get round!!!)? 
We are raising money for Wansbeck Valley Foodbank, a foodbank charity in our home town in the Norh East. 
The foodbank provides vital support to people in need of food who have unexpectedly found themselves in challenging situations.
Last year the foodbank provided the equivalent of almost 30,000 meals to people in need. That's the equivalent of a full days worth of food for 20
people everyday of the year. 
The charity is Run entirely by volunteers and relies on generous donations to keep it going- and anything you can do to help or support is appreciated. 
Failing that it is worth a couple of quid sponsorship to see just how purple-red my face can go when I run!

thank you lovely lot 

Claire (and Sam) aka Team Fuges xx
