Editor Si and Deputy Editor James saw a month's worth of training come to fruition as they both crossed the finishing line, where they were greeted by little Joseph Kendrick and his family, who set up Joseph's Goal, which has been supported by a host of Premier League footballers and new Everton boss Roberto Martinez.

Joseph is now four years old and has Non-Ketotic Hyperglycinemia, a rare genetic disorder that affects one in 60,000 new-borns. The condition is so serious that less than 500 people in the world are living with it. Joseph's Goal has been set up to raise funds and awareness into NKH.

Any money raised funds research in Colorado, with Joseph's Goal's long-term aim to find a cure to the disorder.

The donations page is still available if you're able to dig deep and make a donation to a great cause.

Joseph's dad Paul - who also ran the race alongside Simon, James and Radio 5Live's George Riley - used to work for TEAMtalk.com and is now football correspondent for the Wigan Evening Post and Wigan Observer.

Cheers

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

Who Is The Most Complete Striker Ever..?

...the answer is the original Ronaldo, Gerd Muller, Cristiano or Alan Shearer, depending on who you talk to. We also have one signing per Premier League (and promoted team)...
