Toeing the line with sporting heroes
The Great North Run has been attracting some of the world’s best road runners for years. It seemed very fitting, therefore, that Sir Mo Farah chose this venue to be his final competitive race. But as Farah’s running journey came to an end, for others it was just the beginning. Thomas Gostelow (James Thie, North Somerset AC) also tackled the 13.1 miles and lined up in the elite field for the first time. We caught up with Thomas to learn more about his story: how he first got involved in the sport, what it was like to compete in the Great North Run and how it felt to line up next to Sir Mo Farah.
