The Great North Run is the world's largest half marathon, taking place annually in September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields in the North East of England. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000 m bronze medalist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.
Only the London Marathon comes close to attracting similar numbers of athletes each year.
"I just wanted to thank you and the team at Tommy's for all of the support that you have provided. You have been really friendly and helpful; it was a real privilege to run for such a worthy cause. The Tommy's team in the crowd were amazing - a real boost when I needed it at the end. Please pass on my thanks to everyone at Tommy’s!"
