Kara completes Gt. North Run and raises £240 for Residents’ Amenities Fund

Staff member Kara completed the Great North Run half marathon in September and raised £240 for the Residents’ Amenities Fund with most of the sponsors being residents, their family and friends.  Joining her were over 43,000 other competitors including Sir Mo Farah, Olly Murs and Sophie Raworth. The event stretches 13.1 miles from Newcastle to South Shields and was won by Sir Mo with a time of 59 minutes and 26 seconds. Kara is a keen runner and joins other members of the Chrisfit Charity Running Club twice a week to complete a 3 mile run.   “This was my first attempt at a half marathon” said Kara, “but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely enter this event again”
