Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My friend Davey McTeague watched his father struggle with MS for many years and decided to do something that would be a challenge to raise money for the MS society.  A ride to Newcastle wouldn't be too much of a challenge, doing the Great North Run wouldn't be too much of a challenge but Davey decided to do them together.......and also to convince 50 other people to join him and the RaceAgainstTyne was born.

On 5th September we depart London and ride for 3 days to Newcastle and on 8th September take part in the Great North Run. 

For me, the ride won't be too much of a challenge (I hope!) but training for the run whilst doing a lot of riding is a challenge but every time I go for a run and find it hard, i remind myself why i'm doing it and how lucky I am to be able to run and ride. There are lot of people who would love to do both and their bodies just won't let them.

Any money raised all goes to the MS Society. We are self funding everything to get us to Newcastle and back again (hotels, food,. support vehicle etc).

Thanks for your support
