Hartlepool’s much-loved hospice has secured some extra places for the world famous half marathon but there are only a handful left.

The event typically raises around £30,000 for the hospice each year.

It is set to take place on Sunday, September 12, after Covid-19 forced the cancellation of the Great North Run’s 40th anniversary last year.
