NO LESS than three Ballymena Runners were taking part in the iconic Great North Run on Sunday, which is the largest half marathon in the world!
The event attracts some 50,000 runners to it's Newcastle upon Tyne venue before finishing up on the South Shields seaside.
Amongst those running were Ballymena Runners club members Neil Douglas, Gillian Rennie and Adrian Dodds.
Neil continued his return from injury to clock a time of 1hr 22mins 57secs, Gillian came home in 2:26:51 while Adrian made a bit of a name for himself with a piece of classic photo bombing as Olympic gold medal heptathlete Denise Lewis conducted some roadside interviews with his fellow competitors!
Well done to these three!
