Great North Run and other races completed !!


You may or may not know but I'm (Sandra - Peter and Hilary's daughter) raising money for Kidney Research UK by Running Races in memory of Nigel Whitefield my late husband.

My 1st ever Great North Run completed on a hot sunny day ... 7 September, I ran it in 2 hrs 17 minutes!

The crowds were amazing and the atmosphere electric! Thank you to all sponsors, spectators and volunteers.

The day before my children, Charles and Amy ran the Great North Mini and Junior runs. All in memory of Daddy who died on 1 March 2014.

It was an emotional weekend but we loved it and Grandpa and Grandma (aka Peter and Hilary) watched Charles and Amy's races ... Grandma even ran in Amy's Race!!!

We also had fun on the Quayside watching the City Games in the afternoon.

The Great North Run weekend was a family first for all of us... Even though many of our guests have raced or supported friends/family running the GNR over the years...

I'm running races - 3 x 10km and 2 half marathon so far... still looking at the calendar for more races but think it may be in 2015!

If anyone wants to donate a £1 or 2 to Kidney Research UK, my page is

I'm hoping to raise £1,650 to celebrate 16.5 years of marriage to Nigel. So far I have raised over £1200 and I'm running more races to celebrate my late husband's love of Life and Sport.

Thank you.  Sandra
