Event Write Up 2023
A huge thank you and congratulations from all at CRY to our amazing runners who took part in the 2023 Great North Run!
Congratulations and a massive thank you to the 43 runners who took part in the Great North Run for CRY on Sunday 10th September 2023!
It was a brilliant day, though with a mixture of running conditions. Firstly the weather being sunny and hot, quickly turning into torrential rain, with runners and supporters alike seeking cover in the charity village. Though neither of these are ideal conditions for running, the team did amazingly well to all get round the course safely.
It was lovely to meet and congratulate the 27 CRY runners who came to visit us at the charity marquee and hand them a CRY medal along with some much needed refreshments.
We would like to thank all of the CRY runners’ friends and families for coming along and cheering on the CRY team along with volunteers: David Jewell, Ashleigh and David Collie for their kind help on the day. I know that all of your cheering would have helped the runners get across the line to complete the run.
As always, we welcome any runners that would like to take part next year on behalf of CRY. If you would like to run for CRY in the 2024 Great North Run on Sunday 8th September, please fill in the interest form here: Great North Run – 10th September 2023 – Cardiac Risk in the Young (c-r-y.org.uk) or email your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
