Well done to Kevin Hood for taking victory ahead of Darren Flynn and Danny Hughes. Samuel Charlton ran the fastest race in 10:39 and sets a new course record. With Jack Armstrong in 2nd and Andy Graham 3rd. Sarah Robson ran the fastest ladies race with a 12:41, and also sets the mark for the course record.
I will include this into an overall table with the results from the previous events.

While most of us were taking on the Terry 5k, half a dozen brave Wallsend souls were in the big smoke taking on one of the most gruelling but thrilling running challenges of their lives – The London Marathon.
There were first timers, seasoned pros, and even a televised engagement! Massive congratulations to Marie and John (who said ‘yes’ at mile 24). What a great moment and a first in Green and Gold history!
Terry certainly made sure the sun shined down on us on a glorious April morning, when 234 runners turned out to race in his memory.
The former Wallsend chairman has been remembered in this way every year since 2012. A Green and Gold legend, motivational coach, inspirational athlete and a wonderful friend. He used to say “people need people” and there was nowhere that summed this up more than at West Allotment Country Park in North Tyneside on Sunday April 23rd. It was the Terry O’Gara Memorial 5k.
