Out of the 54,000 runners that participated in this years Bupa Great North Run, one of them was from Emailcenter. Flying the flag for Emailcenter and running to raise money for ‘Cash for Kids’ who provide support to thousands of children across the North East, Simon completed the course in 2hrs 31mins.
Simon had taken part in this race on 8 previous occasions and was hoping to complete the course in under 2 hours this time, but just 2 miles into the 13 mile route his knee gave way and needed to be strapped up. He pulled his socks up and attacked the hills of South Shields once more, limping over the finishing line a few hours later. A true underdog story!
Oh and he got to give a high five to his hero “Ant or Dec”.
