Connecting Education and Industry to inspire young people on Tees Valley.

Going the Extra Mile for High Tide

Carrying on from last year’s efforts, High Tide will again have a team of dedicated runners proudly raising money and representing the Foundation at this year’s Great North Run. The committed team are now appealing for your help and support!

Preparations are already well under way, with the team having recently visited LETS RUN in Stokesley, who are kindly offering training and advice ahead of the big day. They’ll be some healthy competition in amongst the ranks, as well as one or two looking to beat their times from last year. The team is made up of runners from across our industry and education members, including PD Ports, Better, St Peter’s Catholic School and St Hilds Academy.

High Tide Great North Run 2017

First ran in 1981, the Great North Run is the world’s largest half marathon with 57,000 runners of varying abilities taking part. This year’s event will take place on Sunday 10th September.

We’re currently appealing for businesses and individuals to support our fantastic team, who are raising money to help us continue our work with young people across the Tees Valley. Such support is vital to helping us deliver our range of unique programmes that develop skills and raise aspirations and employment opportunities.
