Great North Run – 10 September 2017

Another great set of results for our athletes.  Not sure what our DAC ladies said to Mo over breakfast but their tips seam to have paid off for him.

Claire said “Quote of the Day today by Sarah Smith after we nattered all the way round Great North Run ..when’s the big hill coming? Only to realise we’d run up it and we’re on the down stretch to the finish #DACthesegirlscan!😂”

Glynn wrote “Didn’t even think I was even going to run GNR at beginning of the week. Been fighting off a cold, so haven’t run either. Then to finish it off had the worst nights sleep in a premier Inn ever in Durham last night, so to get under 2 hours well pleased. Good to see me old club mate, Trevor Lambert pass me at mile 6. Good to see you back at it buddy you were looking strong, well done mate”
