Review: NME 1024 683 Sir Graham Wylie Foundation


‘Kaiser Chiefs keyboardist Nick Baines, who’s known as Peanut, finished the Great North Run in one hour and 34 minutes today.’

Taking place between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields, the Great North Run is the world’s largest half marathon with more than 40,000 runners taking part this year.

Peanut didn’t run at the speed of winner Mo Farah, who took first place for the third year in a row, completing in a laudable one hour and four seconds (42 seconds slower that his previous year). However, the keyboardist’s time was faster than the average – which was two hours, 12 minutes and 19 seconds last year – and doubly good considering he’d practically come straight from a gig in Germany the night before, as he told BBC presenter Gabby Logan.
