A FEW WORDS ABOUT US

Tape2Tape organise quality races which provide exceptionally safe and enjoyable experiences for all of our runners.

As experienced runners ourselves, we organise events from a runners perspective and look at all details from the minute the events are advertised right through to being back at home after your race. Our ethos is to provide everyone with a safe and enjoyable race day experience.

Tape2Tape was formed by us in 2011, with our first organised race being the North Lincolnshire Half Marathon. After 6 years of organising races on top of busy day jobs, Nicola now works full-time on race organisation. Neil will follow suit in the Autumn of 2018.

We don’t just see our events as races, we work hard with many local organisations to bring a real community feel to the events, ensuring inclusivity for all. We are very keen to work with local charities and community groups with all our races. Over the years we have directly and indirectly ensured that thousands of pounds has been secured for many worthy causes.

We have gained many loyal volunteers since we started, some of whom we now consider as great friends, we are very grateful to each and every volunteer who joins our Race Crew.

Finally, we absolutely love what we do, thank you so much for supporting our events.


NEIL PATTISON

I am passionate about all forms of running and have ran in races of all distances(100m up to 50 miles) since I started in the mid 1980’s. I have built up a wealth of experience over the years and would describe myself as a ‘steady club runner!’ I have been a member of a few clubs including Hatfield Polytechnic, White City(Hull), Scunthorpe and District, City of Hull, Wolds Veteran Runners Club and Caistor Running club.

I do not have many claims to fame, except having ran in every Great North run since 1992 is something I am very proud of.

My main passion nowadays is off road running, being out in the middle of nowhere in our beautiful countryside for me is what running is all about.

I also love the head torch runs which we organise throughout the winter months, bringing runners from many different places together for some fun!

NICOLA PATTISON

I started running in 2007 and absolutely love it. I prefer long distance and have a real passion for trail and fell running. It usually takes me 5 or 6 miles to get into my stride, which seems to help me on some of the long and mad off road ventures that I like to do. I completed my first road marathon in 2012, having the pleasure of running around the island of Jersey.

My real passion is off road running in the middle of nowhere with a map and sometimes waterproofs! I’m always looking for an off road challenge to test my endurance….its just race organisation that gets in the way now! The island of Menorca has to be one of my favourite places to run, it has a trail all the way around the island that greets you with many different terrains.

My other passion in life is making a difference to others…….I feel that I can achieve this through the races that I organise. The best part of my job is seeing those that thought they couldn’t, cross the finish line, or those that are inspired by the volunteering opportunities we offer. Anything is possible when we believe in ourselves.
