Great North Run 2018 weekend

On the 9th of September 2018

Big Pink Dress had been going exactly 4 years to the day

so this years dress design was all about the Great North Run .

this year was also incredibly special as i was to be given the Point of Light award from 10 Downing street

by the founder of the GNR Brendan Foster on the Start line of the race

from the moment i stepped out the house at 6.45am i was taking selfies with people

the day was getting warmer and warmer but im so used to that now ,unfortunately others were not and seeing medics attending people by the side of the road is always sad .

the whole day was truly breath taking

i ended up doing 17.1 miles lol

cant wait till next year already lol


Fundraiser Colin Plews has been donning the Big Pink Dress and running to raise funds for Breast Cancer Now since 2014 and continues to be one of the great local icons of charity sporting events.
