Great North Run
Joining the thousands of runners who took part in this iconic event were a team of four employees from H&H Group.
Angela Webster (H&H Land and Property), Louise Forrest (Harrison & Hetherington), Molly Blackburn and John Metcalfe (H&H Reeds Printers) all accepted the challenge.
Our Great North Run team all managed to complete one of the most iconic half marathon’s in the UK and all with very respectable times! Leading the field was Louise Forrest from our Harrison & Hetherington team with a finishing time of 2 hours 21 minutes, closely followed by Angela Webster from HHLP with a time of 2 hours 27 minutes. Molly Blackburn & John Metcalfe from HHRP finished with times just under 3 hours – which considering it was Molly’s first half marathon and John was limited to the amount of training he could do due to injuries, pretty good effort all round.
The 13.1 mile course starts in Newcastle upon Tyne, crossing over the Tyne Bridge and finishes in South Shields. Since 1981 the world’s greatest half marathon has welcomed over one million people across the finish line in South Shields.
