A MUM and daughter from Barkway completed the Great North Run on Sunday and described the event as "fantastic".
Val and Emily Davidson, members of the Royston Runners, joined more than 50,000 runners for the half-marathon from Newcastle to South Shields to raise money for the Breast Cancer Campaign.
Emily said: "So far we have raised £700. It was a fantastic day and the atmosphere was really amazing. We did the race four years ago and it was even better this year!"
"I loved every minute of it - it's a really enjoyable race," said Val.
