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 →

WC Monday 2nd September – GNR Special

Monday saw 13 runners head to West Street to complete the monthly mile – see separate post for more info. There was a slight amendment to the start time to allow runners to frantically sit in a cyber queue to secure places in the Brass Monkey road race. 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 →

WC Monday 29th July – Weekly Round-Up

Monday saw the last fixture of the season for NEEMA at Monkton. This series has been well supported by a few and those few who ran, jumped and threw for the club have done us proud. 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.

WC Monday 22nd July – Weekly ‘Rounders’ Up!

We start this week on Tuesday and boy was it hot. I bailed out of training which was Killy Persuits. I am pleased I did, as those that went said it was crazy tough in the heat – so much so that people’s body parts were falling off. YUCK! Elsewhere on Tuesday it was the Cock Crow 5K. A huge well done to everyone that raced in that heat, especially Continue Reading →

Monday night was Monkton NEEMA night – lots of over 35’s running, jumping and throwing stuff, whilst having a good time. There is just one more evening for NEEMA Monkton T&F – and that is Monday 29th July. Its never too late to get involved. Tuesday was a club training session at the Rising Sun. 800’s intervals with a 1 minute rest. Tough in that humidity – but made easier Continue Reading →

Shame we didn’t see many butterflies – just midges! It was wet, it was muddy, in Continue Reading →
