Congratulations and a big thank you to all the CICRA runners who completed the Great North Run today. Our thanks also to CICRA Members the Walker family who kindly met the CICRA runners at the finish, taking the lovely photographs you see too.
Young CICRA member James Walker sent us this report:
The 2015 Great North Run was well attended by CICRA runners. ‘Team Stretton’ comprising of Phil Stimpson, Justin Kisielewicz, Martin Marchant, Richard Sutton, Darren Middleton and Giles Harper achieved impressive times and raised a fantastic £1200.
Friends Estelle Murray and Helen Atkins raised an amazing £500, spurred on by the supportive crowd. They were pleased with their times and thoroughly enjoyed the race.
Tracy Tomlinson ran a brilliant race and was proud of her achievements stating that six months ago she was unable to run a mile! She raised an impressive £500.
Michael George and Sara Kerr proudly finished in 2hours and 20 mins, raising a fantastic £770.
The day was a great success for CICRA, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all in the beautiful sun and scenery of South Shields.
