SNAP-happy Gazette readers have helped to capture the world’s biggest half-marathon in all its glory.
We asked readers, along with Twitter and Facebook followers, to send in their pictures from Sunday’s Great North Run.
Despite the inclement weather, our inbox has been flooded with wonderful images of the 13.1-mile race which ended in South Shields.
From the triumphant smiles of runners crossing the finishing line, to the agonised faces of determination, they’ve all been caught on camera.
Here’s a selection of the snaps we’ve been sent, from Phil Haswell and Stephen Wilson, and some more of the best from our photographer STU NORTON.
