IN CELEBRATION of this year’s BUPA Great North Run, local community website Sky Tyne and Wear wants to hear people’s stories of who they are running for and why.

Almost everyone who runs the Bupa Great North Run has a story to tell, so if you are running in memory of someone or because you simply want to help a charity, Sky Tyne and Wear will feature your story on its site, along with your Just Giving link to give your charity a plug too.

Sky Tyne and Wear community manager Philippa Goymer said: “We are looking for people taking part in this year’s Great North Run to send us a picture of themselves, whether it’s in training, at the pasta party the night before or during the Great North Run along with the reason they are running and we’ll feature it in our special “I’m Running For…” gallery.

“We are very proud to be working alongside the organisers at the Great North Run and David Lloyd in Newcastle – one of Newcastle’s most prestigious gyms, so people that submit their photo will be automatically entered into our “I’m Running For…” competition to win an all inclusive membership package at David Lloyd gym in Newcastle.”

Participants can get involved by downloading the free Sky Tyne and Wear app from the App Store or Google play and sending in a picture of themselves along with a brief description of their story and a link to their Just Giving page via the ‘Your Report’ button.

Or they can go to, click on the “I’m Running For…” section and follow the simple instructions or email a picture or video to and put “I’m Running For…” in the subject line.

The competition is valid from Monday 20th August until Monday 17th September 2012
