When Mr Monkey left the hotel after having breakfast and checking out he found there was a lot less snow lying around than before. It turned out that hundreds of people, intent on running the Great North-West Run half marathon, had trampled the snow while getting to their starting point. Mr Monkey looked over a parapet to watch them gathering at the start (which also seemed to be the finish) then set off into the town centre.
You can see who finished the run at the John Schofield Results Service website.
