I’m thrilled to have the chance to run the Great North Run in its 40th year. It's a turning 50 challenge I set myself last year, but as with everything it's been on hold.

Working at Teamwork I see first-hand what a difference Teamwork makes to the lives of individuals. I know every pound raised will go towards supporting some of the most vulnerable people in Northamptonshire; giving them access to chances, choices and opportunities through the programmes offered at Teamwork.

I’ve been inspired by those who have run in past years to step up to the challenge and I am proud to be running the Great North Run for Teamwork.

All donations are greatly welcomed. Avril Clarke
