On Sunday 8th September Shelley Compton took part in the Great North Run in memory of her son, Charlie, and raised an amazing £337.50 for Baby Lifeline!
The half marathon begins on the A167 road just outside Newcastle City Centre. The route then follows through the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne with runners crossing the Tyne Bridge on the Quayside and into Gateshead.
Shelley said, “I did it………I ran 13.1 miles without stopping!!! I completed my first Half Marathon in “2 hrs 35 mins 44 seconds”. Really happy with my time and it was such a great experience. I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who sponsored me and supported me and followed my journey.”
