RUNNERS only have 10 days left to enter a ballot for a place in the 2013 Great North Run.
The event, hailed as the world’s biggest half-marathon, will take place on Sunday September 15.
Last year over 108,000 applied to take part in the run and 55,000 were accepted.
The event, founded by Hebburn-born Olympic bronze medallist Brendan Foster, raises thousands of pounds for hundreds of charities, with both elite and fun runners taking part in the 13.1-mile course from Newcastle to South Shields.
Last year, honorary starters for the event were gold medallists Greg Rutherford, Mo Farah, Eillie Simmonds, Kat Copeland and Nicola Adams.
