Bernie, the Saint Bernard mascot of Wagging Tails, will take part in the Great South Run on Sunday 28 October 2012 to raise money for Guide Dogs.
Jim Suswain, company director of the dog boarding company, has pledged that he will complete over 100 miles for Guide Dogs in 2012 – a challenge that will have seen him complete three half marathons, three 10-mile runs, a triathlon and various shorter distance events by the end of the year.
The Great South Run will be Jim’s first time running in costume and he is hoping for overcast dry weather. He says: “If it is too hot the suit is absolutely boiling, while rain makes it really heavy!”
