Bupa Great North Run 2014 Finish Line Playlist

I was delighted to be asked to be the DJ at the finish line of the 34th Bupa Great North Run on Sunday.

Working alongside the commentary team of Kris Temple, Radzi Chinyanganya and Bryan Burnett the role involved playing all the music for the Medal Ceremonies, Presentation of the One Millionth finisher as well as playing all the music at the finish line.

Olympic, world and European champion Mo Farah became the first British winner of the Great North Run men's race for 29 years by holding off Kenya's Mike Kigen in a thrilling finish. The pair fought it out for much of the race before Farah pulled clear in the final 200m of the 13.1-mile course. The 31-year-old set a new British half marathon best of exactly one hour.

Kenya's Mary Keitany set a new course record to win the women's race ahead of Britain's Gemma Steel. Steel's compatriot Shelly Woods won her sixth title in the women's wheelchair race, while the men's race went to Spain's Jordi Madera.

Here's all the music played on the day.
