Victories and photos from The Great South Run


On another gloriously sunny day, over 120 runners took part in the Great South Run in October for Get Kids Going! Below are just a few pictures from the day. If you would like to send us more please email [email protected] and we will be happy to put them on our site.

Once again Get Kids Going! wheelchair athlete, David Weir, put in a spectacular performance and won the men's race.

David finished in 35 minutes 15 seconds, over two minutes ahead of Get Kids Going!'s Tushar Patel, who came second and with the 2004 winner Kenny Herriot back in third position.

David is pictured below with his daughter Ronie and our Chief Executive Jane.

We also see Tushar later with the GB wheelchair squad coach, Get Kids Going!'s Paul Hunt (left) and Jane:



Shelly Woods also gave a great performance and won the women's race. Shelly Woods achieved a time of 44 minutes, 1 second, over the 10-mile course, and is seen below triumphantly crossing the finishing line.



Shelly is also pictured below with Jane:



Shelly then picked up her medal from the Mayor of Portsmouth



The rest our runners looked forward to a well deserved massage in the Get Kids Going! marquee at the end of the race:





We'd like to offer our congratulations and thanks to all the runners who took part in the race for us. If you would like to enter the Great South Run 2006 please visit our website and apply online.
