The Great North Running isn’t only for the adults. There are Great North Runs for the youngsters as well. The 3-mile Junior Great North Run for 12-16-year-olds took place the day before the adult Run.
Among those running for MND Association was Kate Cartmell from Ingleton, with her friend Jasmine. She completed the run in 28 minutes, gaining 248th place out of nearly a thousand entrants, and raised £260 for the fight against MND.
That’s over £9 per minute or nearly 5p for every yard covered. Good going!
