Toby with a Twist – results

This years “Toby” event, which raises vital funds for St Oswalds Hospice, unfortunately had to be cancelled.

It was such a difficult decision that Kev and Dave had to make in cancelling our annual 188mile event. They did decide that it would be a good idea to do a virtual Toby.
After making such a tough choice, Julie C and Jen B thought it would be a great idea to get the whole club involved – making teams of 3 runners/walkers, whilst having a bit of friendly club competition.

What a weekend its been. With old and young alike, getting together; running and walking whilst raising money for a brilliant cause.
A huge thank you to EVERYONE who put one foot in front of another. You are all amazing ??

So now for the bit everyone is waiting for;


? Team 1 with 78.69 miles
? Team 6 with 89.34 miles
? with a staggering 100.54 miles between them, is….

Team 5 – Paddy, Sarah & Stephen
A brilliant and dedicated team effort, summed up perfectly by Sarah recording her final miles down Osbourne Road.
Stephen also recorded the highest individual total with an astonishing 43.66 miles! We hope you’ve got your feet up!

The full results are available here.

As a club we ran a total of 1291.66 miles which takes us from Tynemouth down to the south of France, through Monaco, crossing the border into Italy and we end up around Genoa!

But most importantly we have raised over £1000 for st Oswald’s and we are still going!
