#RunningForWayne – Great South Run 2013

#RunningForWayneWho would like to represent Team Wayne in the BUPA Great South Run 2013? After the fantastic support that Team Wayne have had with this year’s run, we are inviting all our supporters to run with us again next year! Sign up and join the #RunningForWayne team!

The Bupa Great South Run is an annual 10 miles (16.09 km) road running race which takes place in Portsmouth, United Kingdom providing an intermediate distance between the ten kilometre and the half marathon (21.097 km) runs. The Great South Run is Europe’s most popular 10 mile race with over 25,000 runners taking part in the 2012 event!

The race has become part of Team Wayne folklore with Damien and Carl running in the 2011 event, then 5 members of Team Wayne (Kevin, Damien, Trevor, Shaun and Carl) running in the 2012 race. In 2011 we took 2 cars down to Portsmouth, this year we took a minibus. If the initial support is anything to go by, next year we will be taking a 53-seater coach!

If you want to join us in next year’s race, you can enter online via the Great Run website.

The entry fee is £41.00 (which is non-refundable).

The entry fee covers admin costs for the race organisers, including road closures and marshaling etc. There were 25,000 runners in this years’ event, which is a huge challenge for the organisers. Additionally everyone who finishes the race gets a finishers pack which typically includes:
• T-Shirt
• Medal
• drink,
• cereal bars

The entry fee guarantees your place in the event and ensures you receive a race pack. The race pack includes:
• Race Number
• Timing Chip to give you an accurate race time
• Competitors Information Guide

Once you’ve registered, please let us know and you will become a member of Team Wayne! When we’ve confirmed all the runners who are registered, we’ll update the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research running team ‘The Unstoppables’. They provide us all with the famous bright yellow vests!

Finally, when we’ve assembled our 2013 team, we’ll look to setup sponsor forms and JustGiving pages so you can start your fundraising campaigns.
