The 10th Toby takes place this year over the weekend of Friday 18th to Sunday 20th August.
If you want to take part, £50 (non-refundable) to Elaine please by 2nd May, which covers accommodation and some other costs. We ask that you raise a minimum of £50 for St Oswald’s Hospice. There are a maximum of 20 places and there are now 18 places left. It’s a great weekend and a chance to be part of the Toby legend and club history!
Alastair finished strong and pipped Danny Hughes for the win. Thomas Ferguson rounds off the the top three. Samuel Charlton, set a new course record with a fantastic 16:49, ahead of Jack Armstrong (17:44) and Andy Graham (18:06).
Sarah Robson was the fastest female with a 20:32, beating Erin Prior (20:46). Well done everyone.
We are really proud to have recently been awarded The Community Spirit Award by St. Oswald’s Hospice for our Toby fundraising success.
Wallsend Harriers has been supporting St. Oswald’s since 2008 and last year we reached our £30,000 target, which happily coincided with St. Oswald’s 30th birthday year.
The Toby run takes place every summer over one weekend where teams of runners do relays to cover over 100 (usually close to 200) miles across the North East of England. It’s a fantastic, memorable event. If you’ve not been involved before and fancy taking part then contact Elaine.
