TBH Juniors Summer GP: Race 4 Results

There may have been a small turn-out for this evening’s 1 Mile time-trial through Jesmond Dene, but what there was was quality.

First over the finishing line was Amelia Short in a fantastic time of 6:26 (yet to be confirmed but I think a new course record). Second was Anna Dorman in a terrific 6:37, with Natasha Prescott 3rd (7:44) and Laura Whitman finishing 4th with a time of 9:17.

Well done girls on a terrific set of times :thumbsup:

2017 Good Friday Road Race

Thanks to Finlay & Anna Dorman for this race report.


Good Friday Road Race (aka The Rainy Road Race): Friday, 14th April 2017


Six daring TBH juniors faced the rain and took part in the Good Friday Road Race. It was good to have a representative from all the junior groups; Mo Farah’s, Seagulls and Peregrines.

First to go was the U11 race, 1.16 miles, with Zara Bungay making her road debut at the age of 6 (she’s already done a cross country relay!!), finishing 17th with a great time 9:18.

Sydney Bungay (Zara’s big sister) also ran a good race, coming 14th with a time of 8:56. At the climax of the race was Anna Dorman, holding off her competitors and taking a well-earned gold medal and first girl, in an excellent 7:09 :thumbsup:

Anna with her Gold Medal

Imogen Bungay ran in the U13’s race, 1.6 miles, coming in at a great 25th with a good time of 11:18.

Jake and Finlay Dorman were in the final junior race, also 1.6 miles, U15’s.

Jake fought hard against some very tough competition to finish 6th in a time of 8:52.  Finlay, who only qualified for the Under 15 race by 2 weeks, finished a great 17th in a time of 9:50.

Well done to everyone who took part! :good:

TBH Juniors Summer GP: Race 1 Results

Race 1 of the Summer Grand Prix may have been lacking in quantity, but it more than made up for it in the quality of the performances.


Amelia Short posted the quickest time of the race, with a blistering time of 6:31 around the 1 Mile course.


But Eve Tovey, Scott Callard and Elliott Short all ran superbly well, and will be looking to improve their time over the Summer Series.

Congratulations Amelia, and well done to all the junior members who competed in the series.

2016/17 Cross Country: Thornley Hall Farm

A big well done to everyone who took part in Saturday’s cross country event at Thornley Hall Farm.


Awful weather conditions (you wouldn’t believe how cold it was brrr!!), together with wet, slippy conditions under foot made for some very challenging races.


JAKE Moir, running in the U11 Boys race, was the first TBH Junior to make an appearance on the day, completing his 1500m-ish lap in a super time of 7:11.


Next up for TBH were HOPE Moir, KATHERINE Bird and new member LAURA Whitwell, all running in the U11 Girls Race.

Despite the poor condition of the course, which was cut-up after the boys race, all three girls ran terrifically well, with Hope first home for the club, followed by Katherine and then Laura.

Representing the club in the U13 Girls was AMELIA Short, who has the pleasure!?! of running 1 large lap of the course. Boy oh boy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much mud on a cross country course, so well done Amelia for finishing the lap in a time of 20:13.

Finally, we had the Dorman brothers – JAKE and FINLAY – running in the U15 Boys race. And as the weather deteriorated, it appeared to spur the boys into performing even better, with Jake finishing 9th overall and Finlay 21st.

With one fixture remaining, Alnwick Castle on Saturday, March 4th, let’s hope for some warmer weather and a course which doesn’t resemble a mud-bath.

With only one remaining race in the series, Amelia will be looking to put in one more terrific performance to hold onto her lead at the top of the table. But with Anna and Imogen having only competed in three races, either one of them could still emerge triumphant at the end of the series.


The next race of the Winter Series will take place on Sunday, 5th March 2017.

2016-2017 NEHL Cross Country

Well done to the TBH Juniors who ran cross-country at the weekend (Saturday, 7th January).


The course at Herrington Country Park was proper cross-country; wet, muddy and very challenging.


In the U11 Boys race, we had William Adams, Joe Eggett and Jake Moir taking part (although sadly, Jake had to drop out due to a sprained ankle).


Next up were Hope Moir, Anna Dorman and Katherine Bird in U11 Girls race. All three performed terrifically well, helping the club close a team in the race.


The U13 Girls saw Amelia Short and Eve Tovey compete for TBH, with Amelia finishing mid-pack and Eve just a few minutes behind.


Finally, we had the Dorman brothers, Jake and Finlay, competing in the U15 boys race. And boy what a close run thing it was. Starting in the ‘slow’ pack, Finlay had a sizeable advantage over his older brother, but after a fabulous run from the ‘Fast’ pack, Jake managed to claw back his brother, eventually passing him in the final 100m of the race. But well to the pair of them for giving 100% to the club.


Full results can Herrington can be found here, and the next Cross-Country fixture is at Thornley Hall Farm on Saturday, 11th February 2017.

TBH Juniors at Christmas & New Year

Wednesday night’s training session – or should I say Games Extravaganza – was the final session of 2016, and TBH Juniors won’t return until the first week in January 2017.


Huge thanks to everyone involved with Wednesday’s session, from the club leaders & coaches, the mums & dads who helped during the games and most importantly, to all the TBH Juniors who came along and joined in the fun.

Hand’s up all those who would like musical statues to become a regular training session in 2017 :good:


So, on behalf of Tyne Bridge Harriers, I would just like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Merry Christmas from TBH Juniors
