This year saw the return of the Bupa Great North Run for 2014. This year also marked one million runners who have taken part in the event, starting with just 12,000 in 1981. Many runners take part and raise money for charities close to their hearts, and many celebrities have ran for the same purpose. Celebrities that took part in this years event included Breakfast presenters Steph McGovern and Bill Turnbull, as well as Hebburn actors Victoria Elliott and Neil Grainger. Well done to everyone who took part!
