Christopher Vickers

45 year-old Christopher Vickers is a lifelong Newcastle United supporter and has always wanted to do the Great North Run. He said “I am especially looking forward to going over the Tyne Bridge as that really means something to me as a Newcastle United football fan. I am not nervous at the moment, I’m sure I will be on the start line though. I have visited Teamwork’s Corby centre many times and have worked in the public and voluntary sector since I was sixteen years of age so I know how important this charity run is. The members know me personally so doing it for them will give me a real sense of pride.”
