#TeamCalvert's Great North Run

September 13, 2017

On Sunday 10 September over 52,000 people took the streets of Newcastle, Gateshead and South Shields to participate in the North East's most famous half marathon Great North Run.

#TeamCalvert had over 60 fantastic people running and it is estimated they will raise over £15,000 for Calvert Trust Kielder.

Skye Solutions and Rosedale Leasing both enter teams into the race, creating a barrage of competition both in finish times and fundraising targets.

Rosedale Leasing have chosen Calvert Trust Kielder as their Charity of the Year and are near to smashing their £5,000 target, speaking after the run the team were elated to have completed the distance.

Once runners had completed the gruelling 13.1 miles they were welcomed into the charity marquee with free massages and refreshment. We were joined by stundents by Northumbria University and Michelle Howe from The Beauty Room. On such a blustery day most were glad of a cup of tea, although one runner bypassed the massage and refreshment and headed straight for the Wylam beer tent.

Well Done to everyone that completed the Great North Run
