Athletics - 11. September 2017.

Mary Keitany wins the Great North Run

Kenya’s Mary Keitany won the women’s race in 1:05:59 with Great Britain’s 2014 European cross country champion Gemma Steel leading the European challenge and finishing sixth in 1:11:32.

However, the day also belonged to the thousands of runners who finished behind Farah and Keitany.

More than 43,000 people took part in the 37th running of the 5 Star Running For All event on Sunday and, as always, the field of what is often thought of as the world’s leading half marathon included many well-known TV and entertainment personalities.

The founder of the Great North Run, 1976 Olympic medallist and former world record holder Brendan Foster, was one of the first to endorse European Athletics’ Running For All initiative which aims to encourage positive partnerships and relationships between everyone involved in running – runners, clubs, organisers, European Athletics, national athletics federations, local authorities, service providers and the media.

“To be confirmed as a quality road race by European Athletics should be a goal for all road race organisers on the continent. Running activities are ever-increasing, and there is a need for a Europe-wide system that ensures runners are able to make well-informed choices when deciding on an event by ensuring its legitimacy and credibility. We are pleased to be an active supporter of Running for All,” said Foster in 2015.

His view has not changed since.
