Go Tri Ponteland #1, 15th May 2019

The sun shone for us for our first Go Tri of the year and we all had a fabulous time. There was a lovely mix of first time triathletes as well as the competitive triathletes and we had a couple of teams too.

Before we get to the results I have a word of CAUTION especially for our more competitive participants. We take great pride in putting on freindly and welcoming events however, the safety of our events is paramount, indeed if saftey is jeopardised we cannot put on these events. Therefore, although we say in the safety briefing that we don’t DQ anyone, in future events we will give time penalties or DQ anyone who does not abide by the ‘rules’ in our safety briefing and puts theirs or the marshals safety at risk. Enough said. Continue reading

Town Memorial 10k Race Report

Well done to all the club runners taking part in today’s Town Moor memorial 10k race organised by Heaton Harriers.

This course gives runners a great chance to get a PB and at least 4 club members took advantage of that today (Paul O’Neil, Helen O’Neil, Matthew Levison and Lynn Midgley Ward) Well done especially to Matthew on breaking (or should that be smashing?) the 40 minute barrier for the first time. Special mention to Mick Meaney too as it couldn’t have been easy doing 10k whilst carrying a dog.
