Arguably the annual sporting event to take place in the North East the Bupa Great north run took place this year under decidedly threatening skies. Thankfully the threat of rain turned resulted in just a few heavy showers.
Despite the weather, with sporting heroes such as Mo Farah, Haile Gebrselassie and David Weir competing this year the crowds were bigger than ever.
Unfortunately, unlike the runners I was a little slow in getting into town this year and missed the wheelchair racers but as usual, click the photo for my full photo set from the race.
