NEHL 2 – 10-10-2021 – Druridge Bay

Unseasonably good weather meant that Druridge Bay was resplendent in the sun – not ideal for the runners but perfect for the spectators. We had a fantastic turnout of juniors and it was great to see quite a few new faces taking part. First up we had the U11 boys with Jack Whitelaw coming 10th …

NEHL 1 – 25-9-2021 – Wrekenton

What turned out to be an unseasonably hot day following an extended period of dry weather meant conditions were far from what you would expect (and some would enjoy) for cross country. Most runners opted for trainers or trail shoes to deal with the hard and dry conditions underfoot, and many of the juniors (who …

NEYDL Div 2 N – Whitley Bay 17-7-2021

This was the third and final fixture in the NEYDL for 2021 and all was to play for with Blaydon and the combined TBH/Birtley team being a mere point apart, so either one of us could have come out victorious. Despite very hot conditions, various club records were claimed, and PBs were set on the …

Morpeth Open Track Meet – King Edward VI School 18-4-21

A great first track fixture of the year, which was held under Covid restrictions, so athletes were only able to turn up, run, then leave, but that didn’t stop each athlete claiming or beating a club record. Hope Moir, Freddie Palmer and Jake Moir all ran in the 800m races before lunchtime, with some considerable …

NECAA XC Championships – Thornley Hall Farm – 12-12-20

The early morning drizzle that accompanied us all the way to Peterlee, turned to persistent rain by the time we arrived, and pretty much stayed with us for the day. The procedures in place allowed for a very well run and Covid-safe environment for the athletes, with every race starting on the hour so that …

Halloween, 31st October, Trick or Treat? Well, if you decide to take part in a TBH XC event organised by Dave Moir then there’s certainly no treats! Dave is affectionately know as Mad Dog, and Halloween seems an appropriate occasion to release the junior athletes in to the hands of a mud loving lupine. I …

Week 12 – TBH Juniors – 8 * 100m

If Usain Bolt had ventured out in Newcastle this week he would have been relieved that he’s retired and not having to face the future talents of TBH juniors. We saw our younger athletes blitzing their 100m sprints with some impressive times. In a tight contest we saw the Shutdown Striders take a narrow victory …

They say that orienteering is the thinking person’s running. Well, we certainly saw plenty of thinking and puzzling as the juniors took on the challenge of the TBH Treasure Hunt – specially prepared by David Daniels and Dave Moir (DDDM).
