The next Great North Run is only a few days away and soon the town will be packed with thousands of participants ready to take on the world’s largest half marathon. A great event which raises so much money for a variety of different charities and one that the North East as a whole can be very proud of.
If you are taking part this year, or even if you just have a keen interest in the run, this video below is sure to get you in the mood for the event.
