Run for Resolution - 2020

FANCY A CHALLENGE for 2020?
running for PTSD

 

Do you like the idea of running and raising money for PTSD Resolution?

 

PTSD Resolution is a charity helping veterans, territorial army and reservists who are struggling to settle back into a normal work and family life because of military trauma suffered during service in the armed forces. So why not set yourself a 2020 challenge and run for us, while raising money for a worthwhile cause. 

A PTSD Resolution t-shirt or running vest will be provided for all runners and a wrist band for each participant. 

The Great North Run - 13th September 2020

The biggest half marathon in the UK and the  World with over 57,000 runners taking part in the famous 13.1 mile run, where participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields. The race was devised by former Olympic 10,000 metre bronze medallist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.

Although a high profile event for elite runners, four-time Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah won the Great North Run 2016 and became the first man to achieve three consecutive wins, it is for all abilities and ages with many using the run to raise money for charity and take part in fancy dress.
