Video: Run England on ITV regional news


Residents in Yorkshire may well have seen Run England's first broadcast appearance on Tuesday when former boxer and regular runner Johnny Nelson, among others, appeared on Calendar - ITV's regional news programme for the area.

Johnny voiced his support for Run England at the project's official regional launch in Sheffield on Tuesday where he was guest of honour and appeared on the clip alongside Sheffield's Lord Mayor Cllr Sylvia Dunkley, Andrew Moncrieff - a running success story who now runs twice a week after having a triple heart bypass, Group Leaders Sean Rodgers, Maria Rodgers, Claire Spencer and Kevin Doyle, and Run England's regional activator for the area Emma Slater-Clayton.

Watch the YouTube clip below and click HERE for more on the launch, including a (very motivational!) podcast with Johnny himself.
