The Toby is over for another year and what an incredible weekend it was! Before this year’s Toby we knew we would break the £25,000 in total money raised for St Oswald’s over the last eight years but I don’t think any of us realised we would far exceed this amount.
Although the younger juniors’ session is cancelled on Friday August 21st (due to coaches taking part in the Toby), the older juniors’ session (Barry’s group) is still on as normal.
Well done to all those who took part in the Club Championships last night, an excellent turnout (despite the weather) and some excellent times from the Juniors up to the Vets. Well done to Elaine Liu and Harry Coates for being our club champions 2015, Olly Aird our under 16 winner and Samuel Warren, Wallsends Junior champ!
Make sure you wear your club vest. The team will meet at the big roundabout at Seaton Sluice at teatime. Check Facebook and Twitter or text one of the team to get an accurate meeting time. It will be approximately 6.5 miles to the end in Tynemouth.
It would be great to see as many green and golds there as possible. It’s for a fantastic cause (St. Oswald’s) so let’s make this a record year and raise as much money as possible!
Joseph’s brother and sister run with Wallsend Juniors. He is 8 years-old and his family are seeking help to raise funds for disability equipment for his specific needs. He has a “wish list” of equipment that would help him, … “live his life to the fullest”.
The race entry fee is just £5 for adults and only £1 for under 18s. This year the run will raise money for the Go “Jo Jo” charity and The Sick Children’s Trust.
Visit the website below for more information and to enter. It would be great to see lots of green and golds there to support Joseph and his family.
Well our combined Wallsend/Blyth team have only just gone and won the final event by a huge margin and we have been promoted to division 2E.
We are hugely proud of our full team. It took guts, determination and a huge amount of effort to get us over the line but we should all be immensely proud to be the CHAMPIONS!
Thank you to everyone who has competed, officiated and supported in all the 4 fixtures but a huge call out to Captain Harry Coates and Becki Jaye for the huge effort they put in across the series and Gez Davidson for his cracking burgers!
Well done everybody from Wallsend and Blyth!
