Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson at Wakefield tenk a couple of times.
Jimmy Saville in Roundhay Park in Leeds. He's often at races round there as well cheering on the runners.
Nell McAndrew at Pudsey tenk. Nice girl.
And Veronique Marot, former marthon(or half, or both, cant remember)world record holder, recently gave me advice about my dodgy knee.

Jane Tomlinson at the start of the Abbey Dash a couple of years ago.
Tony Audenshaw, Bob Hope from Emmerdale, at a couple of races and talked to him at the GNR show thing last year.

Apparently he posts on here.........

Ooh I've got one now - Graham Norton, walking a dog whilst I was running across Blackheath last week. Nice dog, big shaggy thing.

Nobody too exciting...

Jimmy Saville at the Great Scottish Run

Michelle McManus and Yvonne Murray at Glasgow Sport Relief Mile

The girl from Corrie who used to work at the dog kennels and now works in Dev's shop ! - Great Trail Run Loch Lomond

I haven't met anyone famous when out on a normal training run though I did meet Robbie Coltraine in Heathrow once

Lots whiltst running, but most already mentioned.

Tim Vine, in Richmond Park I've also seen Andrew Marr both running and on a bike (though not at the same time, that would be silly) the DI bloke from Life on Mars who was in Calendar Girls. At various Great Souths Frank Brunno (can say I beat him in the 5th) and most of the cast of Emmerdale a few years ago were staying at the same hotel as us as was Bredan Foster.
