2017 Sanlam Go Dad Run – Sunderland
The 2017 Sanlam Go Dad Run in Sunderland has finished for this year and we'd like to give a huge thanks to all the men and boys who signed up and ran in our 5K or 10K at Silksworth on April 2nd. A selection of photos by Nimbus Productions are in the Go Dad Run gallery and also on our Facebook page.
All the results can be found on the Fix Events website at The Fix Events.
We were delighted to be joined on the day by former World Champion athletes Colin Jackson and Jamie Baulch, leading football referees Michael Oliver and Lucy Oliver, the Mayor of Sunderland Cllr Alan Emerson and Sunderland footballing legend Kevin Ball as they set the guys off and then put medals round their necks when they crossed the finished line.
A big thanks also to Liz Conway for getting the runners warmed up and to Michael Bartlam of Radio Sunderland for Hospitals for his great work as our MC and to all the volunteers who enabled us to make the event happen.
Please remember to send in your sponsorship money if you were supporting one of our five wonderful charities, Prostate Cancer UK, Bowel Cancer UK, Campaign Against Living Miserably, Orchid or St Benedict's Hospice and please also check out the websites of our sponsors, Sanlam UK, Big Yellow Self Storage, Everyone Active, PUMA and Wellman as Go Dad Run is only able to take place because of their generosity !
We hope you enjoyed the event and look forward to seeing you and many other runners at the 2018 Sunderland Go Dad Run so please look out for updates on our social media later in the year.
