The Great North Run 2017

Thank you so much to our lovely GNR 2017 team.  The Great North Run is a fantastically supported half marathon in Newcastle the atmosphere rivals the London Marathon with 57,000 runners taking part this year and with an added exciting win from Mo Farah!

Gemma finished the run in just over 3 hours and loved the amazing atmosphere and already wants to do it again. Here she shows off her well deserved medal.  Victoria and Scott also had a great day with Scott being  very excited to get a new personal best time of 1 hour and 54 minutes!  Great work to Gemma, Scott, Victoria and Helen for all their support, hard work and raising great awareness.

If you fancy taking part in the GNR 2018 then we are hoping to buy some more places which will become available before Christmas so please contact Jill  –  fundraising.coordinator@ectopic.org.uk to register your interest and take a look at the GNR website for more information.
