Sergeant Sheli Gordon takes on 160 mile running challange

Published

on

Sergeant Shelli Gordon has raised thousands of pounds by running for charity and takes on a 160-mile challenge this weekend, 22nd-24th May. 

Shelli, 37-years-old works as a Dog Section Sergeant within the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit.

 She has a highly respectable reputation in the force for being extremely fit and healthy and this year she is competing in some impressive running races and walks for charity to raise more funds for Cancer Research UK.

 Over a number of years she has raised between three and four thousand pounds and is expecting to raise another thousand pounds for the well-known charity when she takes on her next set of difficult and lengthy challenges.

 Sergeant Gordon said: “A number of people close to me, aswell as friends’ families have recently suffered from various types of cancer, and over the past few years I have wanted to be able to contribute towards preventing all different types of the disease. I love to run as it gives me time to think in peace in the countryside and I love the adrenalin you get from competing against yourself and the elements.”

Towards the end of this month, Shelli has a 160-mile run planned for Hardmoors, then a 42-mile walk followed by a 42-mile run in the Lyke Wake Walk in June and July. There is also a staggering 192-mile coast to coast run along with two colleagues from Cleveland Police and in mid-August Shelli has scheduled in a 60-mile run, known as the Ultra Tour of the Peaks.

Shelli’s aims are to race this year’s 160-mile Hardmoors in less than 40 hours and to run the coast to coast in 48 hours straight.

North East hit by a blanket of snow many major routes covered

Published

on

Motorists are bring urged to take extra care across the North East as many major routes have been covered.

Heavy snow fall and strong winds have left the A1, A19, A66 & A1M covered in snow.

While many major routes in towns and cities have also been covered leaving many roads difficult to navigate.

Gritting across many areas has failed as the snow has created air pockets allowing the snow to rest on top.

Snow began falling at 11pm last night and is expected to continue until 9am this morning.

A number of schools, colleges and Universities are expected to announce they could be closed for the day. Make sure you check ahead before traveling.

Tweet your snow pictures @PoliceHour or add them to the comments section on Police Hour Facebook page.
