It’s nearly time people! Less than 48 hours until the greatest half marathon in the world!
Hopefully you are all resting before the big day now. Just a reminder that team Green and Gold will meet for pre-GNR photo at 10am on the left hand bank of the orange zone.
The traditional post-GNR drink will be at the Maggie Bank in North Shields as the Porthole is permanently closed 🙁
Good luck everyone!
The Toby is over for another year and what an incredible weekend it was! Before this year’s Toby we knew we would break the £25,000 in total money raised for St Oswald’s over the last eight years but I don’t think any of us realised we would far exceed this amount.
Although the younger juniors’ session is cancelled on Friday August 21st (due to coaches taking part in the Toby), the older juniors’ session (Barry’s group) is still on as normal.
Anyone who isn’t able to take part in the whole Toby weekend can join the valiant troops on the last leg on Sunday (23rd August).
Make sure you wear your club vest. The team will meet at the big roundabout at Seaton Sluice at teatime. Check Facebook and Twitter or text one of the team to get an accurate meeting time. It will be approximately 6.5 miles to the end in Tynemouth.
It would be great to see as many green and golds there as possible. It’s for a fantastic cause (St. Oswald’s) so let’s make this a record year and raise as much money as possible!
