December 21st 2013 The Shortest Day I shall attempt my Longest Run, taking in ALL 4 of the North East Football Stadiums, Newcastle United, Sunderland AFC, Hartlepool United and Middlesbrough FC.

Starting at St James Park I shall run to The Stadium Of Light then onto Victoria Park the home of my beloved Hartlepool United then continue onto Middlesbrough's Riverside, then turn and make my way back to Hartlepool hopefully in time for kick off Hartlepool United v Burton Albion. Approximate total distance of the run 65 miles.
