Great North Run

In September 2010 landlord Ian Warner and friend and barman Tom Handy (and about 50,000 other people) competed in the Bupa Great North Run.

The course, which is a half marathon, starts in Newcastle, crosses the Tyne Bridge, past the athletics stadium in Gateshead and finishes in South Shields.

It was a gruelling event but Ian and Tom finished in 2 hours, 59 minutes and 19 seconds to post impressive sub-three hour times.
