Congratulations to our fantastic Great North Run 2018 runners

Published: Mon, 10th September 2018, 11:16:00 AM

Huge thanks are due to our fabulous Great North Run 2018 runners who did incredibly well training in the summer's heatwave, and all running superbly on the day. We are very grateful to them all.

The day dawned bright and sunny, and our support team were there bright and early getting our stand ready.

During the race start, a man with a microphone on a high stand read out charities' names from people's tops. Our TOFS runners were delighted to hear 'TOFS' read out loud and clear to the assembled crowds!

 

 

Andrew Enright was the first runner to pass our Cheer Point.

Next, Nikki "ten half-marathons in a year" Bowes-Watt passed by our stand.

Friends Pete Sowerby and Neil Stevens were next.
Neil is a friend to TOFS, having run the London Marathon for us last year.
Danielle Crone with her mum Beverley.....
..and sister Carly (and emergency replacement cap!).
Alexandra Dickinson-Lomas was happy to see us.
We were pleased to spot Amy Fox in the crowds!
Adam Tomlinson's nieces and nephew supported him with a much appreciated jelly baby!
We are very grateful to our members Alex and Simone and family who came along to help cheer on our runners. Our thanks to them.
Many thanks to Adam Tomlinson's parents Hazel and Steven, and nieces and nephew, who were all fantastic at cheering on our runners, plus Adam's sisters and partners, who were all running today for different charities. A real family affair! 
We're always pleased to meet our members, so we were delighted when Nicola Bowes came and said hello to us!
What a wonderful day. We hope that all our runners really enjoyed their Great North Run experience, and our thanks to them all again.
