Newcastle Fan Runs Across Australia – Needs Your Help!

7 years ago

While (most of you) were sleeping soundly in your beds, Newcastle fan Mark Allison was running across Australia.

Of course he won’t be able to do it in one night (day) so you’ll have plenty of time to follow his progress.

At midnight our (UK) time, Mark (AKA Run Geordie Run) set off from Perth and is scheduled to conclude a 2,600 mile run on Christmas Eve, hopefully arriving at Bondi Beach in time before the festivities.

Most of you will recognise the name and also nature of Mark’s fabulous charity fundraising, with his runs the length of the British mainland then progressing to a jaunt across America.

Obviously we can all do our bit to help and assist Mark in raising cash for both the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and the Children’s Foundation, two great causes.

You can follow the run across Australia by clicking HERE for more details and of course the important bit, at any time during the run visit HERE to donate and help support two great charities AND a fellow Geordie and big Newcastle fan.

If you happen to live over in Australia then check out the route and give him a cheer, all help, vocal and otherwise, gratefully received.

You can also follow Mark on Twitter @rungeordierun
