The jewels of June

Big congratulations to our awesome juniors, who finished second at the third NEYDL meet at the weekend (25th June). Hosted by us at Churchill Playing Fields it was a gorgeous day and a great atmosphere.

Full results are here.

Many thanks to Christine Stretesky for her invaluable help with the results. Also to all the officials for giving their time to make the day possible.

And well done to Simon Williams, team manager, all coaches and parents and of course the young athletes in team Wallsend and Gosforth, for putting in some great efforts to secure second place in a nail-biting finish!

Later on in the week our ladies put in a fantastic performance at the Anita Nott Memorial Race (see full race report on the website). And our men did us proud at Tynedale 10k the following evening.

Dave Diston finished 36th out of 414 in 38:08. Andy Wigmore got ever closer to his sub 40 40 10k target with a frustrating 40:04. Mick Skeldon was less than 30 seconds behind in an excellent 40:32 and Ian Gowing finishing strong in 41:45.

No club session on Thursday and no track on Friday because of Blaydon Race

As the Blaydon Race is taking place on Friday (9th June) there will be no club session on Thursday. The senior and junior track sessions on Friday are also cancelled.

For those ‘gannin’ along the Scotswood Road’ we will be meeting at the bottom of the Bigg Market near the church (same as last year), at 6.30pm for the traditional club photo.

The post-race debrief will again be at the Old George.

See you there!

Tuesday Fun from the Rising Sun!

Starting from the 23rd of May, all Tuesday sessions for our Juniors and Seniors will be taking place from the Rising Sun Country Park until the 19th September.
We’ll be meeting at the Barking Dog car park from 6:15pm with the aim of starting at 6:30pm.

We’ll also be looking to run a couple of sessions up at Seaton Sluice beach on Tuesday 25th July and Tuesday 8th August, weather dependent of course. More details on the beach sessions will be given nearer the time. So get praying to those sun gods!

Our Thursday sessions will continue as usual from Hadrian Leisure Centre.
