Blyth Links 10k

I’m not sure why more Wallsend Harriers don’t do this race. Perhaps it’s the end of the summer holidays and people are still away. But if you’re about I’d strongly recommend it for next year. Ok it’s not on Power of 10 but it’s FREE and it’s only up the road and it’s our friends and team mates at Blyth, and it’s a gorgeous route, and it’s a great training run ahead of the GNR. Do you need any more reasons? Oh, and there’s a free buffet at the end!

Final SGP Race – That’s how its Dunn!

What a night in the final Summer Grand Prix of 2017. A great run from Ellen Williams beating mother Julie by 59 seconds and holding off Alastair Willis to take maximum points. Both finished ahead of Sam Charlton who sets a new course record (10:14) – on the officially measured 2 mile course. Erin Prior equalled her course record of 12:40 to finish fastest female. Well done both.

The full results are available on RunBritain and Power of 10.

The night’s outstanding performance went to Kayleigh Dunn, after a long road to recovery, Kayleigh’s fight and determination this year has been truly inspirational. With a proud Rafa and Tim supporting Team Kayleigh throughout, they finished together in 11th. And what a fantastic image at the end to see athletes and supporters congratulate and comfort an emotional Kayleigh, a run that will go down in Wallsend Harriers folklore. Well done lass, we are all very proud of you!
