Great North Run 2019 8th September

Team Max Appeal Train Drivers

Mark Trip TrainWe are delighted to announce that the spirit of the Max Appeal Express will be living on in 2019 when a team of train drivers take on the Great North Run carrying a replica of our much-loved train, the team consisting of our very own trustee Mark Tripp and his train driving Colleagues John Doyle, Barry West, Connor Gosling and Luke Venneear have already began training for what should be challenging but fun run in September 2019.
The team came together after seeing the 'Cool Runnings' team from the 2018 event and after hearing about the sad removal from service of our much-loved train.

To ensure it is an all railway affair the train has been designed and built by train driver Paul Tucker and consists of not only 4 carriages but a sound system which will be spurring the team on as they play railway related songs around the 13.1 mile course.

I'm sure you will wish the team good luck as they train throughout the year and take the Max Appeal Express to a number of warm up events.

If you wish to join our runners please email Paul@maxappeal.org.uk for joining details of how you too can take part in the world's biggest half marathon and help raise vital sponsorship for Max Appeal.
Entry for the Great North Run is 56 and runners are asked to commit to raising 200 in sponsorship towards Max Appeal
