Nick Blackmore, 49, Marketing Manager Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce said: “Teamwork were chosen as Northamptonshire Chamber’s Charity of the Year which is why I am taking part in the Great North Run – we plan as an organisation to support Teamwork in as many ways as possible over the year. I have been a regular runner for about 18 years and have run the last two London Marathons for our previous Charities of the Year but I am coming into this quite late as I had to take the place of someone who was unable to run so I am only just starting with my training. I have been trying to get a 12ish mile run in every week throughout the summer to make the most of the lighter evenings, so I’m pretty much up to speed, plus the excitement and adrenaline will get me through though. Knowing I am raising money for a fantastic charity is also a big motivator.”
