Thirsty work, this running lark
This year’s Great North Run will feature the legendary beer stop set up by running club Newcastle Hash House Harriers (“the drinking club with a running problem”). Volunteers dole out beer generously donated by the likes of Tyne Bank and Hadrian Border breweries to thirsty runners.
“Last year we managed to serve about 2,000 runners, says club organiser Keith Hudson. “We hope to do even more this year. Watch out for us at 10.5 miles on John Reid Road in South Shields opposite the Leisure Centre.”
Hash House Harriers will also take part in a post-run from the Sundial on South Shields seafront at about 2pm, taking in a selection of local bars.
