  1. Well done Tom & everyone else.
    I don’t know how anyone can run 13 miles in an hour, or do a sub 4:30 mile in the middle of a Half!

  2. Well done everyone very jealous as I had my entry but didn’t make it due to this damn injury. And to add insult to injury the first time I haven’t watched it in years and Mo wins, grrr, will have to find footage on you tube.

  3. My simpaty goes to Hannah , although she had an entry for the race , she could not make it because she is indeed struggling with her injury, my best wishes to her,and to see her racing soon. Well done everybody who ran in this Great North, especially Sean O’. that is coming from few weeks of injury running a solid half is significant that is back towards being a competitor soon. Also Rachel W. did a good ran in this race .
