Watch a preview of the Tuneless Choir set to entertain crowds on the Great North Run circuit
Participants in the Great North Run will enjoy a chorus of approval when they reach South Tyneside.
As runners reach the home straight at mile 12, singers from the Tuneless Choir will be on hand – and on song.
The group is performing in support of mental health charity Mind at the event.
Ann Marie Nicol, franchise manager for the choir, says: “We could spur them on, so they can get away from us quicker, or just give them something to smile about!”
