Photos at Last!

Sorry it has taken an age to post these! We are very pleased with our new camera, though it will take a bit of getting used to.


Durham Cathedral





Our hotel looking down from the Tyne Bridge. As you can see, we couldn't have been better placed.

It was such a beautiful day :-)





The elite women


The elite men


DS is in the black running shirt between the red and green vests - the photo is clickable, he is runner 5862

He's in there too - somewhere!

Five minutes later and the crowd of runners was much more tightly packed - it would have been very difficult to pick him out in that lot!

After the race in beautiful South Shields

The yellow buses were used to transport kit from start to finish.

The Red Arrows

Spot the sea gull :-)

I can't believe the weather you had - it was truly gruesome here with torrential rain and a wind that sliced through you. Guess the man upstairs was smiling on these amazing people that run to support others.

And well done again to your son! I know how hard it is - my brother and nephew were running in it too!
