Pete & Scott go Head2Head!

2nd October 2013

'Marathon Man' Pete Gough and Police Officer Scott Davies are the second of our Team Red & Team White runners going Head2Head in our fundraising initiative for the BUPA Great Birmingham Run.

Pete is no stranger to a Marathon as he completed his heroic 310 miles in 13 days this year whilst Scott also took part in Free Radio's 26 mile Walk For Kids in full Police Uniform! Both guys have an 'Expected Finish Time' of 1hour 45minutes so this could be our closest Head2Head challenge yet...Take a look at their exclusive Head2Head poster HERE and decide who you think is going to win!

We want to bring some fun but competitive spirit to Team Cure Leukaemia and see whether Team Red or Team White will raise the most in the build up to October 20th. This is your chance to get involved with your very own template to challenge your friends or colleagues, so follow the link HERE and be creative!

Team Red's Pete Gough,  who raised over £7,500 in his 310 mile marathon said;


“Most people might think a 310-mile marathon was enough for one year but I had to sign up for this run for Cure Leukaemia. Im really excited abiyt the Head2Head challenge as it’s something new for all the runners. There is a lot of friendly rivalry going on between the two teams and I’ll be wearing my Team Red T-shirt with pride.”

Team White's Scott Davies, who will be running alongside his wife PC Jess Davies said;


“With Cure Leukaemia celebrating its 10th anniversary it seemed fitting to run the BUPA Birmingham Great Run for Team Cure Leukaemia.


Jess's mom has blood cancer so it's something that is close to our hearts and we've raised money in the past with Jess completing two marathons, me completing Beefys Great British walk with my daughter; I also walked the 26 mile route for Free Radio's Walk for Kids and donated our Wedding Favours to the charity." 

We’d love to see your Head2Head challenges and any photos or videos of you in training. You can tweet us @Cureleukaemia or send directly to and we will show our favourites!

You can follow Pete on Twitter @GoughPetegough & follow Scott on Twitter @flipflopflyer

Keep up your amazing fundraising and we will be revealing our target so far on Friday Morning!
