The Paralympic gold medallist Hazel Robson grew up watching the Great North Run. As a sprinter, she was never able to take part in the long distance event.
Last summer, the Wearside runner retired. That has given her the opportunity to fulfil her Great North Run dream.
Watch Lucy Taylor's report here:
Hazel Robson from Sunderland ran her season's fastest time to qualify for the 100m T36 final. Robson came fourth in her heat, but ranked seventh overall, meaning she takes one of the "fastest loser" places in the final tonight.
Robson has won medals at each of the last three Paralympic Games, including gold in Sydney, but missed out on a medal in her first event, the 200m, a week ago.
