Rumour had it that the weather was biblical; thunder, lightning, hail, the lot, but from what I could see on Facebook it was glorious sunshine (bunch of drama queens :).
Am I annoying you yet?
I’ve been a member of Wallsend Harriers for just over a year, having joined in August 2017. I thought I’d write down my experiences with the club as I think it’s a generally fantastic thing to get involved in (just don’t get me started on the Bogie Chain, I hate the Bogie Chain).
A huge turnout with 48 runners crossing the line, with our juniors sweeping the podium.
🥇25:17 – Daniel Broderick
🥈25:25 – Alfie Short
🥉26:59 – Zara Ratcliffe
In terms of fastest individual times, Danielle Hodgkinson was our leading lady in a rapid 17:32 and setting a new ladies course record in the process.
However the plaudits go once again to Sam Charlton who ran the 5k route in an astonishing 15:36 – a new PB for him as well as the WGP course record! Unbelievable that both records have been broken!!!
Thank you to Bill, Simon, Steve, Donna & Stephen for their support in making the event possible.
Full results are here – see you at the next one!
The weather was not as advertised but this did not deter our faithful band of Green and Golds…
