Barry – IRIS Field Manager – and his Dad, Chris (Ex IRIS BTS engineer) recently completed the Great North Run, raising money for the British Heart Foundation and successfully reached their £500 target!
We caught up with Barry and Chris post run to see what they had to say about the event…
“We would like to say a big thank you to everyone for the support and donations made to our charity the British Heart Foundation, we managed to hit our target which will help towards getting AEDs out into local communities.”
“We both managed to complete the run myself in 2:23:23 and Chris in 3:18:05, we can honestly say it’s not as flat as Manchester and was mainly uphill the crowds of Newcastle were amazing and it’s a fantastic experience, I would recommend it to anyone thinking of completing a half marathon to start with this one. Our times are below with a picture at the bag collection not too far from a beer tent. Thanks again for all the support”
