Those that know me will know I’m not the fittest person in the world, so this is my greatest challenge to date.

I’m running the great north run for my son Max Gardner, who is currently recovering from his life saving bone marrow transplant. As I type this I struggle to run for 13 minutes let alone 13 miles.

I’ve managed to convince my brother Josh Wilson & my best mate Anthony Scurfield both who are fitter than me and have experience running in the great north run who are both going to help me through my training and push me throughout the gruelling run.
