A pensioner from our area is all set for her first competitive running race at the age of 81!

Mum and grandmother, Yvonne Gamble-Thompson, from New Marske, has been inspired to enter the Ali Brownlee Cleveland Centre 5k in honour of her favourite Boro commentator.

Yvonne will be wearing her ‘One of Our Own’ Ali Brownlee t-shirt and will be accompanied around the 3.1 mile route, which takes place in Middlehaven and ends inside the Riverside Stadium, by her daughter Helen Hall.

And if Yvonne needs any advice on how to tackle the route, she has plenty of people to ask. Husband Harry Gamble-Thompson, who is 84, has run marathons across the world along with daughter Helen and remains involved with New Marske Harriers.
