Pier To Pier Run 2012

Post Type

I received my number this afternoon for the Pier to Pier run 2012. If you attend, look out for me! I’m number 459. I’ll be the guy near the back thinking how on earth have I ended up running this?


Seriously though, I’m looking forward to it. I’m running it with Peter, who’s also signed up with me for Total Warrior. He’s been to the last couple of 5k runs too and he’s a very good runner. He says he’s unfit at the moment but he still runs rings around me! The Pier to Pier is about 7.5 miles or 12km. The race starts on the beach at South Shields and runs along the cliff tops to Roker. If the weather is nice, I’m expecting a nice run with fantastic scenery.


If any of you fancy a shot and are free on Sunday 20th of May 2012 at 10am. Get signed up and I’ll see you there. If you’d like more information on the run, please see the official Sunderland Strollers website here.


Stay fit,
