After 30 weeks of training, race day finally arrived. By way of a diary and some “interesting” statistics – here is the race report. Hopefully this serves as inspiration to the brave band of warriors preparing to enter in 2018. Huge thanks to everyone at the club for their support.
September 10th saw more club members get half marathon PB’s than can possibly be mentioned here.
Kind weather, great support, a bump and a bear are the main headlines.
Apologies if I’ve missed anyone off. see the full list of results
First time relay participant Theo Fourie gives us a race report on the Gosforth Summer relays.
A full race report from Abby and Lesley about the 2017 edition of Ponteland Tri.
The 2017 edition of this well organised, local race took place over a slightly shorter (but safer) 6-mile route on a hot, humid evening. The flat course also gives club members a great chance to score lots of points towards the club championship
A record 356 participants took part over what is a regular running route for lots of our club members and the pie, sandwich, crisps and chocolate bar handed out afterwards were enjoyed on the balcony of the Leisure Centre by all.
Well done to everyone taking part (Fiona and Mick narrowly missing out as the podium only had two steps at this race). Full results below.
