The race is famously flat and proved a PB winner for several of our crew: Geoff (41.22), Kerry (47.57), Andy Wigmore (37.47) and new recruit Catherine Graham (48.29, a whopping 10 mins off her 10k time!) Sarah Robson was on cloud nine after breaking 40 minutes (39.39). She was 11th female overall.
Simon was our first Wallsend male in 36.35 (41st male).
The full team were Simon L, Martin Crozier, Andy Wigmore, Sarah Robson, Adam Hamilton, Geoff Cavanagh, Keith O’Donnell, Barry, Sam Crooks, Ian Gowing, Stephen Taylor, Emily James, Alan Heslington, Kerry Spencer, Catherine Graham, Mick Lindsay.
Well done for flying the green and gold everyone!

This was Wallsend Harriers’ 12th Toby run for St Oswald’s Hospice. It was my third and it was great to see some of our newer members take on the challenge and, might I add, completely nail it!
It’s a great way to get to know fellow green and gold members more, take in spectacular views, push yourself and of course, raise money for a charity very close to our hearts.
From the words of Churchill to the sacred grounds of Churchill, together we threw, jumped and ran for our lives. Ok, a bit dramatic perhaps, but we did do it to cling fiercely onto our place in the dizzy heights of division two in the Northern Athletics Track & Field League.
