One of our previous runners, Ardelle, shared her experience of running the Great North Run:

'I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to run one of the best races in the UK, but to also raise money for such a helpful charity.I felt so supported along the run up to the event itself by Turn2Us reps too...Getting to take part in the 40th anniversary of the Great North Run was incredible. The atmosphere was buzzing which just added to the adrenaline of the day!'
