TEESSIDE Tornado Richard Kilty took to Stockton High Street to encourage families to take on a sporting challenge.
The Commonwealth Games gold medal-winning sprinter ran fun exercises and games, and took the time to take photographs and sign autographs with children after each session.
Alongside the Simplyhealth Great Tees 10 on Saturday, September 8, there will be the Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great Tees Run which offers courses of 2k and 4k for those aged three to 14.
Every entry to the Mini Run comes with a free place for adults to run with their child, and all children will receive a running T-shirt, finishing pack and medal.
The 2k Mini starts at noon, with the 4k Junior starting at 12.45pm.
