Veteran runner raises money for heart charity
3:26pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
VETERAN runner George Parker raised more than £600 for British Heart Foundation (BHF) at the Bupa Great North Run.
Mr Parker, from Porton, who has taken part in more than 40 races over the years, clocked the tough 13-miles in 2hours 46mins on Sunday, September 15.
“I've taken part in a lot of races but this one was especially challenging,” said the 76-year-old.
“The rain and wind was horrible to run in. But I managed to get round the course and I'm very pleased to have raised money for BHF.”
