WC Monday 9th September – Weekly Round-up

So I am guessing that Monday was a recovery run day for a lot of people. Tuesday was club training – probably our last evening session at Rising Sun as the nights are getting darker sooner. Huge turnout with many wearing their well deserved GNR t-shirts; we did Figure of 8’s. Tough after GNR! Thursday was club training again. Saturday was parkrun day – that said, I didn’t run but Continue Reading →

Well done to all those who were fortunate enough to get a place. Tuesday was club training – 400’s at George Stephenson Continue Reading →

Weekly Round-Up – W/C Monday 26th August

Bank Holiday Monday – what a lovely day for a run. A group of us met at Rising Sun for a 5 mile social run, with a few also gathering afterwards for a coffee. Running, conversation and coffee are a perfect match. Can not believe that was over a week ago. Over at Gateshead Stadium there was the Tartan Games taking place. Representing the club was James Meader, Calum Mills, Continue Reading →

Summer grand prix update – again!

I’m back with the second update to the summer grand prix in a week. We added a lot of races to the summer schedule to give you plenty of opportunities to score points, with last night’s Morpeth 10k providing the third chance to do so in three days. There’s now a bit of a break until the next race, next week’s Quayside 5k. Apparently this is very speedy course, and Continue Reading →

Throughout the series there has been some amazing individual and team performances with many achieving PB’s, records were broken and ultimately Heaton Harrier’s women finished 3rd in their league and the men finished 5th.
