Support our Great North Runner: Chris Chambers

Tuesday 12 July 2022 Written by: Adam

This September 11 Chris Chambers will take on a fantastic personal challenge, running the iconic Great North Run half-marathon from Newcastle to South Shields, helping raise valuable funds for Newcastle Rugby Foundation.

The foundation aims to motivate, educate and inspire using the power of sport and we are really grateful to Chris for helping support our charity by taking on this challenge.

“I would love to run the Great North Run on behalf of Newcastle Rugby Foundation,” said Chris.

“Having grown up in a sports-mad household, I am a firm believer and strong advocate of the positive influence of the power of sport, and what it can bring to people of all ages and abilities.

“Newcastle Falcons have been a big part of my life for the last 20 years, ever since my sister came to university in Newcastle, and met and went on to marry Matt Thompson.

“The passion the Thompson family have for the sport, and in particular rugby, in Newcastle, is second to none. I welcome the chance to raise funds for Newcastle Rugby Foundation on their behalf.”

To support Chris as he bravely aims to complete the Great North Run in sub 1hr 20, which would put him inside the top 200, please [**click here**][1].
