HORRIBLE Histories author Terry Deary will take a break from a 100-mile charity challenge to sign copies of his books.

The creator of the popular children’s series will embark on an epic challenge to run the length of Hadrian’s Wall within six days.

When Terry reaches Newcastle, he will take part in the Great North Run, bringing his total number of miles to just under 100.

After completion of the third leg of his run, the 65-year-old will stop at Herding Hill Farm, Shield Hill, Haltwhistle, for the book-signing. Terry, who lives in Burnhope, near Lanchester, County Durham, should be there between 5.30pm to 6.30pm on September 14.

He is running in aid of Durham-based charity Integrating Children.

“Integrating Children is a very worthwhile cause in my local area of Durham, supporting disabled children and their families,” said Terry. “Hadrian’s Wall is one of the most impressive and interesting historical landmarks in the UK, so it seemed fitting to attempt to run its length – it will certainly be a challenge.”
