Newcastle Xmas parkrun results

When it got to 8:30am on Christmas morning and the only people at Newcastle parkrun were myself, Ian Kirtley (Newcastle Event Director) and a couple other volunteers, we began to wonder whether anybody would be turning up to run, especially as the constant drizzle had washed away any hopes of a white christmas. But as is usually the …

Guisborough Woods Fell Race: 27th December 2012

A big hearty well done to David Beech, David Daniels, James Knox, Sparrow Morley and Stephanie McFarlane for completing this year’s Guisborough Woods Fell Race. Not only did they have a challenging course to contend with, but a chilly easterly wind meant they couldn’t stand around for too long for fear of freezing to death. The recent poor …

For a second day in a row Tyne Bridge were represented by a strong contingent of members at a local running event.

parkrun roundup: 22nd December 2012

Despite the sodden footpaths, drizzly conditions and stiff breeze blowing across the moor, over 200 runners still took part in Saturday’s Newcastle parkrun event. Which just goes to show what some people will do to get out of early morning Christmas shopping!! Well done to all the club members who took part in parkrun at the weekend, either running or volunteering, …

Saltwell 10K Road Race 2012 – Provisional Results

Normally, standing around in pouring rain and getting battered from bitterly cold winds wouldn’t rank high on my list of ‘things to do on a Saturday afternoon’, but last Saturday was the exception to the rule. Watching so many club members take part in Saltwell Harriers annual 10K Road Race was a joy to behold (although I’m not sure …

NEHL 2012/13 TBH League Standings

The NEHL 2011/12 season was a great success for Tyne Bridge Harriers, with the Men’s team being promoted to Division 2 and the Ladies winning promotion to Division 1. And as we head into the second half of the 2012/13 season it appears the TBH success bandwagon keeps on rolling, with both the men and women topping their respective divisions. Hear’s to a …

parkrun roundup: 15th December 2012

With the holiday season upon us, a few TBH members have returned home to be with their families and as a consequence we’re seeing results from parkrun events we’d rarely get to see. Well done to all the members who ran at a parkrun event on Saturday.         Results for Newcastle parkrun, …

Guisborough Woods Fell Race – 27th December 2012

Donostiako Maratoia – Donostia/San Sebastian Marathon, 25th Nov

Continuing his challenge of doing marathons in cities with two names (Turku/Abo in Finland in June) November found Colin Dilks in southern Europe, and here’s his race report. I had entered the Donostia/San Sebastian Marathon because I wanted to go back and see more of the Basque Country (or Euskal Herria in Basque) – that …

Simonside Cairns Fell Race: 9th December 2012

Well done to all those who took part in this year’s Simonside Cairns Fell Race, situated just outside of Rothbury. Although weather conditions were fine for running, the same couldn’t be said for conditions underfoot. To describe them as ghastly would be an understatement of the highest order. Snow, ice, waist deep bogs and foot …

parkrun round-up: 8th December 2012

With the North Eastern’s taking place later that day, and the fact it was bleeding perishing, there was a distinct lack of members out and about at the various parkrun events on Saturday. But for those who did venture out, particularly at Newcastle parkrun, well done on surviving the slippery conditions. It was scary stuff …

But that is another story, this one is to honour and celebrate the great achievements by both the club and its members in 2012. Congratulations to all the award winners listed below. Winter …
