Congratulations to Jarrow and Hebburn AC legend Carl ‘Mowza’ Mowatt, who ran an astonishing 101.4 miles in 23 hours 6 minutes, to raise money for Guide Dogs. His epic challenge started in the early hours of Saturday 24 October, taking in the entirety of the Tyne and Wear Heritage Way, and finished on South Shields seafront early on Sunday 25 October. Carl smashed his fundraising target of £5000, raising enough money to provide a canine companion to someone who is blind. You can still donate via his JustGiving page. Thank you to everyone who supported him before, during and after his challenge, including members from both Jarrow and Hebburn AC and South Shields Harriers. You can watch highlights from this amazing feat on YouTube and here is the write up in the Shields Gazette.
