Sunday 9th June, as always, is the Blaydon Race. 2013 saw 18 Ponteland Runners enjoying some warm weather and running this traditional Race. For the ladies, Joanne Brown came in first with an excellent 37.49, Claire Tumia came in second with 40.49 and in third place came Chrys Hudson in 44.11.
The Ponteland Runners men were led in by Mark Lyon in 36.18 followed by Jon Parkin at 37.36 and third across the line was Joe Bell in 40.09. Everyone enjoyed the race and were pleased that the weather wasn’t a repeat of last years downpour. In fact it was a complete opposite with the sun breaking through the clouds at 2pm in time for us gathering at the start. It was hot, very hot !
Our thanks go to Blaydon Harriers for a well organised day, as always, and everyone is looking forward to next year.
