The group is performing in support of mental health charity Mind at the event.

Ann Marie Nicol, franchise manager for the choir, says: “We could spur them on, so they can get away from us quicker, or just give them something to smile about!”

The Tuneless Choir will live up to its name and reputation at the 12-mile stage at the Great North Run.
