The Terry O’Gara Memorial 5k Road Race is an annual race (in March/April time), open to all, held in memory of our dearly beloved and much-missed former chairman who passed away in 2012.

The flat, fast, largely traffic-free course will now take place at Cobalt Business Park, starting from the West Allotment Country Park.

There is also a fantastic one mile Fun Run for youngsters and partners who are not able to compete in the full 5k race.

Registration (from 8.30am): Spud and Lettuce Café (Silver Fox Way) NE27 0QJ

Every 5k finisher receives a commemorative t-shirt and there is a good bag and medal for Fun Run finishers.

£15 for British Athletics/UKA members

£17 for unattached runners

£18 on the day

£3 per Fun Run entry (on the day)

The race starts at 10.30am with a Junior Race at 10.00am (approx. 1 mile). Juniors can enter on the day.

There will be goody bags to all finishers and cash prizes for first three males and females as well as for over 40,50,60,70 (male) and 35,45,55,65 (female).
