Great North Run 2010

Congratulations and a huge “thank you” to all who took part in the BUPA Great North Run in aid of CRY on Sunday 19th September 2010.

This year we had a team of 52 CRY runners amongst the thousands of participants – including CRY’s Communications Assistant, Mair Shepherd.

Everyone seemed to enjoy another fantastic race day despite the horrible weather and aches and pains – although at least the weather was more runner-friendly than last year’s blazing sunshine! It was a truly incredible atmosphere once again, at a unique event which we are pleased to be a part of.

Please also e-mail us your own pictures of the 2010 Great North Run if you would like them to appear on these pages.

The pouring rain seemed to cool everyone down at the end but made for a shivery start to the race. Many of our runners struggled at the notorious incline at mile 10 of the course, but they kept on going to be greeted by the comforting sight of the sea at South Shields, which signified that the finish was near!

It was wonderful to finally meet so many members of the CRY team as well as their supporters and cheerers at the finish area. This year CRY had a stand in the Bronze Charities marquee, which was excellent for raising awareness as we branded the whole area that was allocated to us and had plenty of CRY information and literature for runners and spectators who were not familiar with the charity and wanted to find out more. Nearly all of our runners dropped in to see us, and it was lovely to hear that many of them had supported other team members and given an encouraging pat on the back or cheer if they saw another CRY runner on the course. James and John, our two heart costume runners, seemed to receive a huge amount of support, with extra loud cheers and encouraging high fives along their way.

Thank you so much to all who came to meet us, despite feeling emotionally and physically exhausted. It was a challenging day for everyone, and especially difficult for those who were running in memory of a partner, family member or friend.

We are grateful to all who have sent in photographs from the day. If you haven’t already then please do send any photos you have to kerry@c-r-y.org.uk – we will include as many as possible on this webpage.

Once again, we would like to thank each and every runner for their huge efforts in completing the half marathon and fundraising for CRY. Your time and valued support are truly appreciated. Well done!
