Tyne Bridge Harriers had 10 athletes taking part in the weekly FREE timed event at Newcastle Town Moor on Saturday.
Conditions were absolutely superb as 09:00 came and the starter got the 92nd race underway.
There were some fantastic PB’s recorded; Mark Grassie continues his good form and chipped off 44 seconds from his previous PB. Joanne Lee recorded a new PB slicing 1 min 8 seconds off her last recorded time. Victoria Waugh put in a superb run and still returning from injury managed to chop 1 minute 16 seconds off. However the most fantastic NEW PB of the day was from Jude Smith who put in an excellent and determined run to carve, slice & dice her previous parkrun PB by a massive 2 mins : 48 seconds !! fantastic stuff Jude.. keep it going !
Rob Wishart was the first TBH over the line running a leisurely (for him) 19:20. He was followed closely by new TBH signing Brent Mitchell-Wright with a nice solid debut parkrun of 19:44 and one to build on. Once again Graham King was King of the 55-59 Age category.. well done Graham. New TBH athlete Catherine Amos put in a fantastic parkrun debut run of 20:55 showing her strength for the future. Rob ‘Shades’ Kirtley made a return to parkrun and still recovering from a foot injury managed to run a 22:19. Sam Collier was also determined (not to get poached) and ran the 5K in a steady 27:49.
Well done to everyone who took part.
