Thanks to the wonderful and hardy souls who braved the autumnal weather to participate in yesterday's Great North Run.  Our wonderful team of 95 runners are set to smash their fundraising target of forty one thousand pounds.

A number of our corporate partners turned out in force.  19 runners from Price Waterhouse Coopers, and 12 from Northumbrian Water pounded the cross country course along with the other 64 WaterAid runners.  Two runners even decided to make the challenge a bit more gruelling by opting to run in 6ft toilet costumes to highlight our issue and try to get snapped by the TV cameras lining the route.

The Great North Run is an institution in the British running calendar and we're really proud to have been part of it.

If you were inspired to get involved and run in 2014 you can book your place online today with WaterAid.
