We would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the runners who took part in this year’s Great North Run to raise funds for West Cumbria Carers.
The Great North Run is one of the most popular half marathons in the world, every year 56,000 runners take part in this amazing event.
3 runners generously gave up their time in order to complete this personal challenge and raise funds for us.
After months of training we are very proud to say that they all completed the run and in fantastic times as well. Becky Burns and Kat Blakeney completed the run in a time of 3 hours 27 minutes and William Cunningham’s time was 2 hours and 21 minutes.
Becky sent us some great pics of the event (which you can see on the right) but, as she explained, “not many as we were enjoying the day too much to stop for photos!”
She went on to say “…we are very proud and also very chuffed to have raised some money for West Cumbria Carers, it has been worth all the pain ha-ha! Thank you for letting us be part of an amazing experience to help support the charity, we are chuffed xx”.
We would like to thank our team of runners for undertaking this challenge and for raising vital funds for West Cumbria Carers.
It's not too late to support our team - you can still donate to our Great North Run campaign here.
