Hope you are watching the Great North Run, maybe even competing, and being inspired for next month.


Gary get your kit on and take part or will you and Indy be doing the pre and post run interviews?


Those who aren't running can they donate their time and support the event, drink stations/marshals etc.


I know when I organised the Friends of Moore Nature Reserve Half Marathon and took part in the Golden Square Half that I appreciated all the help and support I got. And it's great to see my old mate from Warrington Athletic Club days, Derek starting the race. Didn't he win the Golden Sq event back in the day?

Latchford Albion Unicorns are tenants of Victoria Park, and their many kids teams use Victoria Park on a Sunday morning, but I suppose whilst its local children playing sports, they have been disregarded by the council. I know they pay handsomely for use of this facility, I doubt that the council has took this into account, and that the club will be offered no help or compensation for the disruption, considering they have paid to hire this facility already.

That doesn't sound right surely the organisers have checked with the park officials to see who else is using the facilities, especially as the half marathon starts at 9am and will go on for hours.


When I organsied the Chris Vose 10km I only had 1,000 competitors incorporating 3 events and we more than filled the car park.


I had meetings with police, Warrington Borough Council, and local organisers.


Do you know that there are also events planned for the Saturday?
