Gordon Smith Relays 2019 – Provisional results

Firstly a huge thank you from us all at Wallsend Harriers for braving the conditions last night and giving us another evening of top class entertainment.

We’d also like to publicly thank our wonderful event organisers, officials and marshals for their fantastic efforts and enthusiasm – we hope you’ve dried off and warmed up by now!!

Finally a huge thank you to Dave Daniels for the speedy results.

Here are the provisional results from last night;



Full results and report will follow in due course.

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.

Danielle’s living the dream!

Time for a huge big up to our speed Queen Danielle Hodgkinson…

In the last couple of weeks she achieved her dream of wearing an England vest and was first home for the England team at the Parelloop 10k in Brunnsum, Holland. Not only that but she ran a 10k PB of 34:13!

And if that wasn’t enough, a week later she smashed it again! Winning the Titanic 10k in Belfast (representing the North of England) and taking another 32 seconds off her 10k time.

This ranks her in the UK top 10 this year! What a woman!! We are all super proud of our girl. Massive congratulations Danielle.

Taylor ‘boosts’ to victory in SGP ?

Despite ‘taking it easy’ prior to his marathon on Sunday and in the midst of ultra training, our victor crossed the line with room to spare.

17:59 – Mark Taylor
18:13 – Matthew O’Donnell
18:51 – Mick Costello

What a turnout – 42 of you (the largest ever SGP based on the records I have) braced a chilly and wet rising sun course. Read more
