Photos from the Great North Run

Over 700 runners took part in the 25th Great North Run in September for Get Kids Going! Below are just a few pictures from the day.

Our first picture above shows our youngest runner, five year old Sophie Stephenson with the Get Kids Going cheering team at the Junior Great North Run on Saturday 17th September.

You have already seen our wheelchair athletes in the previous story, but other wheelchair athletes from Get Kids Going! did not let the side down even if they weren't in the top 3 or four positions.

Steve Edwards is pictured below:

We also had some great fancy dress runners:

More runners were snapped by the BBC throughout the day

At the end of the race runners congregated outside the Get Kids Going! marquee where a queue began for the well earned and well deserved massages.

Here are some runners having their massages:

We'd like to offer our congratulations and thanks to all the runners who took part in the race for us. If you would like to enter the 2009 Great North Run please visit our website and apply online.
