What a weekend it was! A Royal visit, trophies galore for the juniors and a sea of Green and Golds for the big event. Yes, it was Great North Run weekend.
I’ve been a Wallsend Harrier for over eight years now but, due to babies, job etc, this was my first full Toby. I’ve had a taster but not endured the epic three-day journey with all its aches, laughs, drama and animal encounters. It’s been a long time coming but boy was it worth it…
Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying that the Great North Run is an iconic North East event.
On Sunday prior to the race, it doesn’t matter if you’re donning our legendary Green and Gold colours, a charity vest or even fancy dress – if you’re a Wallsend Harrier you need to be in our GNR team photo.
