The Great Northern Run!

By February 25, 2016News

Following their involvement in the Warrington to Newcastle Magic Weekend Bike Ride during 2015, which involved cycling 184 miles over two days, two members of Foundation staff have decided to go the extra mile and RUN to Newcastle for Magic Weekend 2016.

Community Rugby League Coach Wil Maudsley will be joined by Foundation Rugby League Manager and former Super League star Shaun Briscoe as they run 140 miles over four days to raise funds for The Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation, The Steve Prescott Foundation and Wigan Stars.

Shaun said; “Following the bike ride in 2015, we wanted to push ourselves to the limit this year and do something even more difficult.  We know it’s not going to be easy but a challenge isn’t a challenge unless it’s challenging!”

The duo will leave The Halliwell Jones Stadium on Tuesday 17th May and run a minimum of 34 miles each day to ensure they reach St James’ Park before the start of the Super League Magic Weekend on Saturday 21st May.

To sponsor the guy’s efforts, you can sponsor them via their Just Giving page or text ‘SALH96 £10’ to 70070. You can also keep up with their progress in May by following @WWCLSFoundation or @sbrisk1 on Twitter.
