Not sure whether this is best placed here or in the Trailer Park, but anyway....

Run Geordie Run

This chap, Mark Allison, is about two days away from completing his 3,100 mile run across the US in 100 days, with the aim of raising £50,000 for two different charities. I had the pleasure of meeting him when our paths crossed in Columbus, OH a couple weeks ago, but as a fellow geordie I had been aware of his efforts from the start.

Reading both his blog and his twitter posts, he is two days away from his target and is aiming to complete 100 miles in that time. A truly Herculean effort. If any of you are in a position to offer any form of support to him, whether a donation, a few words of encouragement on twitter, or even welcoming him in to Coney island I am sure it will help keep him going to his target!

I'll only bump this once, but on a night where the news is dominated with loutish behaviour in Britain, Mark's heroic feat (and feet!) deserve some attention. He's making his way through Manhattan as I type and for those there that want to cheer him on, his street route is up on his Facebook page.
