There will be plenty of Poolie interest in Sunday’s Great North Run so look out for some familiar faces in the famous half marathon event.
Pools boss Colin Cooper is once again taking part, leading a band of runners competing for the Finlay Cooper Fund which includes Club staff Jim Provett and Nick Green.
Former PA Announcer and current Programme contributor Phil Dunn will also be pulling his trainers on to complete this year’s run as part of ‘Team Sally Holbrook’, named in memory of Pools fan Sally who died in a car accident in December 2012.
Phil – doing his first-ever Great North Run – is part of a seven-person team running for Hartlepool & District Hospice, which includes Sally’s husband who is also called Phil and is another big Pools fan.
Good luck to everyone competing on Sunday!
