The Great North Run 2019! Singing Home 57,000 Runners!

This weekend over 150 of our Choirmaster singers performed to almost 57,000 runners at the home straight of the Great North Run 2019! Proud doesn’t even come close! It was such an incredibly uplifting and emotional experience watching how much of an impact the music had on the runners! 

Our final song was Run For Home by Lindisfarne and watching the choir try and hold it together as 57,000 people ran for the finish line was an experience I will never forget!

Below are just some of the comments we had from the runners after the race:

  • “I’ll be honest Adam it was uplifting and dashing all in the same moment – it has me in tears now just writing to you.” 
  • “I love music and singing and it was great, a perfect compliment to the music that ‘got you going’ at the start, but by that point I was emotional (and very tired).” 
  • “Good music makes me emotional anyway, and added to my fatigue at that point, I just cried so I had to stop and gather myself before I pressed on for the line.” 

What a wonderful day and experience! A huge thank you must go to the team at The Great Run for impeccable organisation! We will be saving the date for next year!
