‘We are very proud to be associated with Nike UK alongside all of our other partner sponsors. Nike UK has a rich heritage in the North East stretching back to the 80’s, when the offices first opened with none other than Brendan Foster at the helm. It’s amazing to think how the organisation has grown in the UK and globally since that time. We are looking forward to tipping off this year’s proceeding with Nike UK’.
