TBH Club Sessions

To comply with guidance from both the UK Government and England Athletics we regrettably have to suspend group training sessions until further notice. We know that many people would like to continue with their training and would encourage individuals to do this responsibly – but would specifically ask that training sessions aren’t organised from the …

It’ll be all white on the night (or yellow, orange…)

  With evenings now becoming darker from around 7:00pm, members and new runners to the club are requested to wear suitable clothing during training sessions.  The essential item of clothing is the running top, as this is the largest bit of kit and can be seen the most effectively.  Whether it’s a t-shirt, jacket or …

A time to reflect

For obvious reasons, people have had a lot of time recently to think about and re-assess the important things in their life.

TBH Virtual Relay Race: St James to South Hylton

And to make the event more …

An ode to Tyne Bridge Harriers

For many of us, the coronavirus lockdown has meant we’ve had a lot of spare time on our hands. And while some have used it to sunbathe, binge watch TV box-sets and treat it as a mini-holiday (okay, just me – DD), other members have been using the time in more productive ways. Reflecting her …

TBH Running Challenges

This week, besides the regular training sessions, members have also been given a range of challenges to complete. Some are running based, some are strength orientated and the rest are purely for fun (in other words, to make the members look foolish). A collection of photographs taking during the challenges can be viewed below.

TBH Running Challenges

With things the way they are, you could be forgiven for slipping into the routine of doing the same run, along the same route, at the same pace, at the same time of day for the duration of the lockdown. And although there’s nothing wrong with that (it’s sure beats sitting on your behind all …

A long time ago…Nice

A long time ago…Vienna

This weekend (Sunday, 5th April) should have seen the running of the Berlin Half Marathon, but as we all know, sporting events around Europe have been postponed due to the Coronavirus, so the next best thing to running a half marathon is reading about one.
