You may be forgiven if you look at the photo and think it’s the start of an open water triathlon but no, it’s the 2014 Coastal Run hosted by Alnwick Harriers. Eleven Pont Runners contested this always fairly gruelling race but what made this year’s renewal so much tougher was the heat. With a later start time than usual, no cloud cover and almost no breeze, it was a challenge from the start and PBs were few and far between. David Stroud was the first club runner home. It was tough for all of us but spare a thought for the man first over the line who was then disqualified for an incomplete race number transfer. Tough. David
