Barry is running Great North Run 2014Last year it was our illustrious leader Darren running the Great North Run to raise money for the NSPCC, this year our Stock Operations Manager Barry takes over the charity baton!

Barry is raising money for Arthritis Research UK by running his first ever half marathon later this year at Great North Run 2014.

"I am aiming to beat Darren's time of 2hr 07m. Although 13.1 miles is unchartered territory for me, anything can happen on the day. Darren is running again this year and I'm sure he'll want to improve on last years' effort!"

To keep an eye on Barry's progress in the run up to the event you can follow him directly on twitter here @INKredibleBarry where he will be tweeting training run and sponsorship updates.

You can also donate to this fantastic cause by visiting Barry's Just Giving page or by texting 'BAZF50 £2' to 70070.
