Despite the awful weather conditions, there was a great turnout of Tyne Bridger’s at the 105th Newcastle parkrun event (with half a dozen more members helping out with volunteering duties). And the club were awarded by their endeavours with Sparrow Morley, and latest TBH recruit, Jordan Mullinger, finishing first in the male and female categories respectively.To celebrate Newcastle parkrun’s 2nd Anniversary, club member Mark (rungeordierun) Allison was invited along to make a speech during the post-run festivities and to present awards to several runners and volunteers for their terrific contribution over the past year. (Mark also made his parkrun debut but, unfortunately, is not shown in the results as he has not registered with parkrun – YET!!)
355 participants completed the run on Saturday, with the first male to finish Sparrow John Richard MORLEY in a time of 00:17:35. The first lady completing the course was Jordan MULLINGER (formerly Holmfirth Harriers AC) in a time of 00:20:32.
Congratulations to Sparrow and Jordan, and well done to all the members who took part in the run.
