Geoff gets set for 13 mile run

Have your say

AN APPRENTICE from Sheffield is gearing up for a half marathon this Sunday.

Geoff Van de Velde, who works for Network Rail, is one of 20 of the firm’s apprentices competing in the Bath Half Marathon in aid of Action for Children. The team aims to raise at least £1,000.

Geoff, aged 27, an electrification and plant apprentice based at the Network Rail depot in Doncaster, said: “This will be my third half marathon. The first was when I was 18, taking part in the Great North Run, and last year I did the Sheffield Half Marathon.”
