THREE friends raised more than £1,800 for charity by competing in the Great North Run.
David Cran, Oliver Moorhouse and Steven Rudd took part to raise cash for the British Lung Foundation.
Steven was first home with a time of 1hr 59mins followed by Oliver at 2hrs 21mins and David at 2hrs 36mins.
David and Oliver both who work at estate agency Bramleys in St George’s Square while Steven is the owner of butcher’s shop Meat Steve at Queensgate Market.
The three men – who were sponsored by family, friends, colleagues and the partners at Bramleys – had set a target of raising at least £1,500 for the charity.
Steven’s wife Amanda Rudd, who is sales and marketing manager at Bramleys, said: “We’re really proud of them all.
“Although it was fantastic running weather, it wasn't great for their fan club waiting for them at the finish line!
“But the atmosphere and camaraderie on the day – as well as their sense of achievement – made it a weekend and a day to remember.”
