Club member, Dave Moir, was TBH’s sole representitive at this year’s VAANEE 10k Championships and sends in this report.

parkrun roundup – 1st September 2012

Giving the fact there were two big races the following day, there was (unsurprisingly) a fairly low turnout by club members at Newcastle parkrun on Saturday.  Nevertheless, Sparrow and TC managed to entertain all those at the finishing line by having a minor tiff towards the end of the run.
