TBH Virtual 5K Handicap Race

For the latest virtual challenge, TBH members took part in a 5K Handicap run. But rather than handicap times being applied to individual athletes, they were applied to the training groups instead.  So rather than running for personal glory, members were running for the honour of their regular training group.  And the victorious group were…(and …

A long time ago…Prague

We’re skipping back five years to May 2015, and revisiting the Prague Marathon. Completing a marathon is always a special occasion, but for Steve and Mary Pattison, that year’s Prague Marathon was memorable in more ways than one.   Volkswagen Prague Marathon Sunday 3rd May 2015 Report by Steve Pattison   Back in January I …

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…Warrington

Following the positive response to the ‘beach videos’ posted here a few weeks ago, we have another vintage video to enjoy. Filmed in 2011 at the 6 & 4 Stage Road Relay Championships in Warrington, the video features several current members and all I’ll say is, ‘haven’t they aged well!‘ Full credit to Rob Kirtley …

parkrun challenge: 18th April 2020

As we all know, parkrun events are currently suspended because cafe’s have ran out of cake and coffee. But that doesn’t mean we can’t run parkun in the virtual world (this virtual world is a mighty busy place at the moment). The premise behind this challenge was to count the number of members who ran/walked …

A long time ago…Paris

For our next visit to the club archives, we’re travelling back to March 2012 to read about the Paris Half Marathon. But we haven’t got one race report. Oh no. We don’t even have two race reports to digest. In fact we’ve got three race reports, all from the same event, and all belters too. …

A long time ago…Barcelona

Our next race report was written in 2013 and is from Barcelona (it was written in Heaton actually, but you know what I mean). The club had been going for two years by this point and this report was a real game changer as it was a message to fellow runners to never give up …

Bridges of the Tyne Race: Cancelled

Unfortunately, we have had to make the very difficult, but probably not surprising, decision to cancel the Bridges of the Tyne 5 Mile Road Race on 7th July 2020.  This is due to the ongoing health concerns surrounding the Covid-19 virus and the uncertainty as to when events will again be allowed to take place …

A long time ago…Leeds to Liverpool

This time we heading back to August 2015, and Rob Wishart‘s attempt to travel from Leeds to Liverpool. For most people, the trip would be done by car or bus, or even on a bike if they’d felt energetic, but Rob wanted to run it. Solo, and without the aid of GPS. Let’s see how …
