A runner took part in the world’s biggest half marathon to raise money for a charity close to his heart.
Ryan Hall, from Blyth, was among the tens of thousands of runners who took part in the Great North Run on Sunday, completing the 13-miles from Newcastle to South Shields in a time of four hours two minutes.
The 20-year-old, who has Downs Syndrome, was raising money for Downs Syndrome North East and is hoping to raise over £500.
His mother Alison said: “It was hard work in the heat.”
Ryan also plays football for Newcastle United Ds Active team and does circuit training at Millennium Martial Arts Blyth.
