The Unlimited Great North Wheelchair event

After weeks of training our five amazing novice wheelchair racers took their positions on the start line for the inaugural Unlimited Great North Wheelchair event.

Rosie Macauley

— "I’m glad that I’ve managed to do something that I never thought I would be able to do, and that was because of all the help I got for the last ten weeks. It is amazing to finally know I did something!"

Ian Irving

— “Every year since the Simplyhealth Great North Run started I watched it on television and always wished I could have been part of. Even though it’s not the main event, I have been part of the weekend. I’m really honoured to be part of it, especially on this waterfront. Brilliant!”

Megan Bradley

— “It’s really, really good and there needs to be more stuff like this for more disabled kids around the country. It’s an amazing event.”
