I'm the author of 290 children's books including the best-selling "Horrible Histories" titles. The Great North Run inspired me to take up running at the age of 40 in 1986 and it's still a hobby 30 years later. Down the years I've raised money for children's charities - in 2011 (age 65) i ran the length of Hadrian's Wall in 6 days and ended with the Great North Run on the 7th day. 100 miles and raised £8k for 'Integrating Children'. 

Event details

2016 Great North Run

I'll be running the Great North Run for the 20th (and probably the last) time at the age of 70. There will be a lot of BBC Television coverage for my participation this year with a series of pre-recorded appearances to tell the 'horrible' tales of 5 places along the route, as well as a pre-race interview with Gaby Logan.

Good luck Terry! Just saw you interviewed on Bbc1. Buying the 'Terrible Tudors' in the early 90s set off a lifelong passion for history for me - I still have all my books!
