These days I can run a bath but that's about it!

My point is that back in the early 80's I entered the Great North Run for the first time which as you know starts in Newcastle, crosses the iconic Tyne Bridge, passes Gateshead Stadium and finishes in my beloved home town of South Shields.

As a boy I ran for South Shields Harriers, competed in club races at Gateshead Stadium and was once only 10 yards behind Steve Cram when he finished a mile race (albeit it one lap down!!!!).

The route I had travelled along many times by car and bus.  Part of the excitement was being able to run along the same roads without traffic.  For anyone familiar with the Broads I can understand the same charm value to be able to swim in familiar waters.  For anyone not familiar then the opportunity is there to become captivated and return as a visitor.

I am not denigrating the risks but as an organised event participants are well informed.  Just adding a different perspective

The pace of life down there
