Jess & James Run 4 Harry - The Great North Run
Under clear blue skies and a warm autumnal sun, Jessica Denton and her uncle James Hughes took on the challenge of the Great North Run raising £1350 for the Youth Sport Trust & Meningitis Research Foundation. Having trained for several months, they were delighted with their finishing times of 2 hours 25 minutes coming 28958th out of a total 54,000 runners. As they went over the finishing line, the Red Arrows began their breathtaking aerial display – an apt salute to a fantastic effort!
Jessica has been so bitten by the running bug that she is now considering attempting the London Marathon….watch this space!
