THREE Huddersfield runners are taking part in the Great North Run next month.
Husband and wife team Stephen and Joan Williams and a former neighbour, Delrose Benjamin hope to complete the half-marathon from Gateshead to Newcastle in under two hours.
They hope to raise at least £300 for the Leukaemia Research charity.
Joan, 44, and Stephen, 43, of Deighton, completed the run in two hours when they took part in the event in 2000.
Delrose, 45, has not done the run before, although she and Joan have run several races for Yorkshire Cancer Research.
"We started running together just for fun, but over the years it has developed and we have raised money for several charities," said Joan.
