Run Northumberland 10k – 14th October 2012

Huge congratulations to Rob Clark, one of the club’s newest members, on his victory at this weekend’s Run Northumberland 10k race. The event, organised by Run Northumberland, is best described as undulating, and Rob finished over a minute ahead of the 2nd placed runner.

Round Ripon 35 Ultra – 6th October 2012

        Dave Rowe reports from this year’s Ripon 35 Ultra race. In the week leading up to the race it appeared everyone around me was coming down with a cold so when it got to Friday night I was a relieved man that I had escaped its evil clutches. We set of …

Kielder RunBikeRun Race – 6th October 2012

Claire Grossett writes this fabulous report from the Kielder event. This was my first ever run-bike-run: my first event involving anything other than just my legs. I was understandably nervous that my two-wheeled friend would let me down. I had opted for a hybrid bike, rather than a mountain bike, as I hoped that what I lost …

Kielder 10K Race – 6th October 2012

Mark Reynolds reports back from the Kielder 10k on another successful afternoon for Tyne Bridge Harriers. It seems to be a fatal flaw of mine to only enter 10 km races that involve plenty of hills.  Having staggered round Morpeth, Edinburgh and Cragside next on the list was the Kielder 10k, staged the day before …

Loch Ness Marathon, 30th Sept

“That’s the last one until 18 miles,” panted a runner just beside us as we crested the big hill at five miles into last Sunday’s Loch Ness marathon. Through the tree cover on our left broke a view of the loch itself a couple of hundred metres below, as calm as a TBH coaches meeting. …
