2020 is the year the Great North Run went ‘virtual’ – and so did we! Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who ran, stepped and donated for Sporting Memories.

Among those running and stepping September's Virtual Great North Run half-marathon to raise funds for Sporting Memories were:

– Fabulous fundraiser Stephen and his super-stepper dad, Peter

– Maurice (aka Sporting Mo) and Summer the (canine) Runner

– Donna and Sporting Memories doggy superstar Max

– The marvellous Moira, Susan and Kayleigh

– And Max Coates, who when not running for Sporting Memories drives racing cars as fast as possible

Of course, at Sporting Memories we are always ahead of the curve.

Waiting at the side of the track was ‘Steps for Sporting Memories’ – a virtual walk we had been trialing among staff and volunteers. Little did we know just how timely it would be. We developed and designed a theme, 'Athletics Greats', and off we set – a virtual walk with the opportunity to meet and learn about some of the greatest names in athletics along the way. In your own time, however you like.
