The Simply Health Great North Run 2019

This year's Great North Run had an electric atmosphere and saw a record breaking 57,000 runners participating. The sun was shining down across the North East of England and the conditions for fast running were in play.

Sir Mo Farah won the Elite Men's race in a personal best time of 59:07, securing the title making it his sixth - another record! He looked comfortable throughout the race and kept a pretty even pace with an average speed of 4:31 mins/mile.

The winner of the Women's Elite race was Brigid Kosgei. She set a world's best time of 1:04:28. She won with ease, outclassing everyone else in field (or should I say on the road?).

The was a plethora of first time runners and so many personal bests that you couldn't help but get inspired by each athlete that ran their heart out and completed the race.

Running brings a whole community together and it's beautiful to see athletes in support of each other running towards the same goal.

Now the question remains, are you running next year?
