A PROUD grandson will be following in his family’s footsteps when he lines up for his first-ever Great North Run next month.

Jonathan Smith will be going the extra mile in the famous half marathon in tribute to his late grandad James Smith – who took part in a remarkable 21 Great North Runs in a row.

The determined 26-year-old never got the chance to complete the 13-miler alongside his grandad, who died of heart failure at the age of 81 in May.
