2020 Toby with a Twist

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.

Challenge 1
How far can you walk or run as a team of 3? Mixed teams with different ages and abilities.
Each team of 3 will consist of 1 Male, 1 female and either an over 40 or a junior runner, running together or separately.
Each mile that every individual covers counts towards the final total. To be fair, we will organise the teams accordingly. .

Challenge 2
How far can we walk or run as a whole club? It will be great to see how many miles we can clock up as one big team! 💚💛

All you need to do now is register your interest by replying via the Facebook thread or message us directly.
Please do so by Thursday at 5pm.

Don’t worry if you aren’t on Strava you will be able to send us Garmin uploads or pictures of your watch screen.

We would like to stress this is NOT about going out and injuring yourself by running huge distances you aren’t used to! It’s about doing what you usually do, plus a little more perhaps, having fun, working as a team and raising money for a great cause. With a little friendly competition added in!

All we ask is to donate a minimum of £5 per person (excluding juniors) to our JustGiving page. All proceeds will go directly to St Oswalds Hospice, the chosen charity of Wallsend Harriers

💚Please be generous💛
