Toby 2019

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.

Terry O’Gara 5k 2019 (and the other race that day….)

This was the 8th Terry O’Gara Memorial 5k in honour of the great man, our former chairman and all round legend. It is always such a privilege to have his son Steve join us for this special occasion, to start the race and hand out the prizes in his own, inimitable style (always a highlight) and to see Terry’s grandchildren Shay and Isla run the junior race. He would be so proud of them.

This year we had a record 201 finishers, beating 182 from 2018. The weather was perfect and 28% of our runners got a new 5k pb! It is a cracking, fast course so please do recommend it to friends and fellow runners for next year.
