The Great North Run

10 September 2017


The Compassionate Friends are lucky to have 4 runners in this race of 13.1 iconic miles from Newcastle to South Shields. This is the world's biggest half marathon, taking runners through the city centre across the iconic Tyne Bridge, and through Gateshead (while being entertained many bands and if lucky the Red Arrows!)

Our four special people running for our charity are Val, Sharon, Andrew and Alex.Thank you to them all for their wonderful support. Best of luck to all four for their training and the race itself. You can sponsor them at the links below:
