This years “Toby” event, which raises vital funds for St Oswalds Hospice, unfortunately had to be cancelled.
It was such a difficult decision that Kev and Dave had to make in cancelling our annual 188mile event. They did decide that it would be a good idea to do a virtual Toby. After making such a tough choice, Julie C and Jen B thought it would be a great idea to get the whole club involved – making teams of 3 runners/walkers, whilst having a bit of friendly club competition.
What a weekend its been. With old and young alike, getting together; running and walking whilst raising money for a brilliant cause. A huge thank you to EVERYONE who put one foot in front of another. You are all amazing
Calling for more Green and Gold members to sign up to raise money for St Oswald’s Hospice! Remember this is NOT about how fast or how far, it’s about working together to help a fantastic cause in a time of need. All we are asking for is a minimum of £5 donation and that you add a few miles to the total.
Thanks so much to those that have signed up. Your efforts and contributions, no matter how big or small, will make a difference to the amazing St Oswald’s Hospice.
Every summer around 20 hardy Green and Gold complete a distance running challenge to raise money for St Oswald’s Hospice.
This year’s event has sadly been postponed until next August. Never defeated, however, we would like to get the whole club involved in raising some money and hopefully having some fun at the same time.
The challenge will take place this bank holiday weekend over 3 days, Saturday 29th, Sunday 30th and Monday 31st August.

So last week we trawled the archives to find the inspiring story of 10 Wallsend men on a mission to break the 100-mile relay world record. And this week we have the headline you’ve all been waiting for…
