Race with Jo Whiley

Jo Whiley is on the lookout for a running buddy to join her at the Bupa Great North Run. The DJ has signed up to her first ever half marathon and biggest physical challenge to date and you could be in with a chance of being her training partner. 

The winner will receive expert guidance from Bupa’s team of experts and will join Jo for two training sessions before accompanying her to the start line of the world’s largest half marathon.

This is part of Bupa’s My First Run campaign, which aims to get 2,000 people to lace up. Jo said commented on her motivation behind the challenge: “Like a lot of people, my life is really busy with my many presenting commitments and running around after four kids. So, I find it difficult to motivate myself to get active and having someone to train with will help me stay focused. I appreciate the benefits of being fit and healthy and after some great advice from Bupa, all I need now is someone to help get me to the start line!”
