Simon Cox

44 year-old Northants businessman and leader of the Kettering Business Network, Simon Cox has run half marathons in the past but says he is particularly excited to run for Teamwork Trust as he will be running alongside his wife, Natalie – also part of the team. “I have heard so many great things about the Great North Run so I am really looking forward to it, even though the route itself is apparently very challenging. I love being part of a team – it gives me real focus and motivates me to get fitter but doing it for Teamwork Trust along with my wife will make it extra special. I can deal with the tiredness and fatigue knowing I am raising money for such a great charity.”
