Great North Run 2013

Great North Run 2013

gnr 2013 T.B







This year we had over 35 runners take part in The Great North Run on behalf of Escape Family Support. Despite the cool and windy weather each and every one of our runners was in great spirits, we want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you. The Great North Run is a brilliant way to raise funds and awareness, and without our runners we wouldn’t have been able to raise the huge amount of sponsorship or promote our services to so many people.


The training obviously paid off and we thought you all looked like true athletes in your eye catching vests.

Once again thank you so much to everybody who took part, we hope you’re feeling fully recovered and enjoyed the day enough to consider joining us on this crazy adventure again next year.

If you or anybody you know would be interested in signing up for the GNR 2014 please contact Jennie asap at:

We can guarantee that by the time you’ve finished reading these quotes from some of our 2013 runners you will find it hard to resist signing up for next year:

“Such an amazing day doing the Great North Run!!! Atmosphere was incredible and very proud of myself for running it all considering I did zero training! Thanks for the sponsors everyone!!!” Cheryl

“Wahoo! I did it! It was wet and windy and I had blisters from about the 8th mile but I made sure I didn’t stop and I did it in under 2 hours, whoop!” Abby

“Sitting back watching the television, I did it in 1 hour 37 minutes, 10 minutes quicker than last year. It was a great face. Loved the rain, I’m still on a post race high, not bad for an old man.” Larry

“Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to run, I will stick with Escape every year. Great day, great crowds, great cause!” Tom

“I survived my first GNR, time was 2 hours 54 minutes and I loved every second.” Gemma

“Really enjoyed doing it this year and getting a PB into the bargain . Would be happy to run again for you and with any luck the vest will still fit!!” Patrick
