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.
The race partners ran the 13 miles in a time of 2 hours 20 minutes.
And after taking part in Chariots of Fire, the Pink Ribbon Run, and the Flora Light run in London, the mother and daughter appear to have caught the running bug.

"It's nice to be able to run together and I'm sure there will be a lot more in the future!"
