Well done to the small contingent of Tyne Bridge Harriers who travelled to Thirsk on Sunday to take part in the annual Thirsk 10 Mile road race. Although it was nowhere near as cold as Prudhoe x-c the previous day, the wind was just as strong, with many runners reckoning it put minutes on their finishing times (not that old excuse again ;-)).
