Whilst we are all coming to terms with the disappointment of an England-free World Cup Final we can at least be happy about the performances of our Green and Golds this week. It’s been action-packed…
On a blistering hot SGP evening Mark Taylor took the top spot comfortably holding off the ever improving Adam Hamilton in second. Alex Hemsley secured a podium spot following an excellent run at Weetslade last week.
Congratulations to Sam Charlton, fastest man, a new course record and first athlete to dip under 10 mins, with a 9:59. The family kudos goes to his dad Simon, pipping Sam to the line by one second. Well done both. Despite nursing a hangover Erin Prior was once again the fastest female with a great run in 12:34.
Graham Armstrong has taken a nine point lead in the SGP table, knocking Mick Skeldon off the top spot. Andy Wigmore sits third with Mish Margison moving up to fourth. There are still plenty of points on offer, with the next race the Tynedale 10km on Thursday 5th July. If you want your predicted time, let me know.
Big thank you to Jess, Brian, Nina and Bill for officiating and marshalling.
It was reet hot gannin’ down that Scotswood Road on Sunday 9th June. There was a mysterious 15 or so minute delay at the start and a bottle neck just as you were getting going (due to road works) but let’s not dwell on that. Because that day turned out to be a momentous one. One that will go down in Wallsend history. The girl is back in town…
On Tuesday (12th June) Paddy is putting on a beach session at Seaton Sluice, near where the Butty Bus Diner used to be (the same meeting place as last year).
The session will start at the normal time (6.30pm).
Simon William’s juniors will also be training at the beach this week.
Kev will be training around the Rising Sun, meet at the Asda Benton car park as usual.
For those of you doing the Blaydon Race this Saturday, don’t forget it is a 3pm start this year. Read more
