Nissan LEAF sets the pace at this year’s Great North Run

This year’s Bupa Great North Run, which takes place on Sunday, will see a Nissan LEAF leading the 55,000 runners over the 13.1 mile course from Newcastle to South Shields.

Newcastle-based Benfield Group has teamed up with race organisers Nova International to provide the electric vehicle as the official timing car, as well as a further two cars to act as support vehicles.

Paul James, from Nissan Communications, one of the many employees from Nissan Sunderland Plant taking part in the race, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting such a great event like the Bupa Great North Run. It is fitting that the world’s biggest half marathon is led by the world’s best-selling electric car. I wish all my fellow runners every success in Sunday’s race.”
