NEGP 6 – Gateshead Stadium 7-8-19

The final fixture in the NEGP series had 3 TBH juniors out, with many of our reguars away still on holiday. Amber Maynard had a good try at a PB in the 800m, falling short only by a couple of seconds. She put in a brave first lap but fading slightly in the second, but …

NEGP 5 – Monkton Stadium – 24-7-19

On a stifling hot evening in Jarrow, there was an even quieter turn out for the TBH juniors at this fixture. With summer holidays kicking in, and massive traffic problems on the Tyne Bridge itself, it meant that some of our regulars couldn’t even get to the track in time for their races, so we …

TBH Juniors – 1 Mile Race

Hello TBH Juniors I suppose given the TBH Juniors are officially now on holiday (both from school & the club) and are most likely to be found either away on holiday or in bed sleeping the hours away, the fact we had four members take part in the 1 Mile Race is reason to celebrate …

NEGP 4 – Monkton Stadium 10-7-19

Much quieter turn out for the TBH juniors at this fixture, with the seniors actually managing to match our low numbers this time around. Our first event with runners in was the 200m. David Carr’s first attempt at this, resulted in him setting a very respectable 32.27 PB and claiming the U13 club record. Zak …

NEGP 3 – Monkton Stadium 26-6-19

We had a great turnout for TBH juniors, with 11 athletes competing at this fixture. First up were TBH’s newest signings, Joshua Bruce and Fraser Bigg. In their first ever competitive race, they were both thrown in at the deep end, as they were seeded amongst the senior athletes in the U17 age category. This …

NEGP 2 – Monkton Stadium, Jarrow 22-5-19

The first event that TBH took part in was the U13 shot putt, with Harry Snaith’s first ever attempt at this event.  After a shaky couple of no-throws, he sorted his technique out enough to claim the U13 boy’s outdoor shot record, with a putt of 4.50m We had 5 athletes in the next event …

NECAA Track and Field Championships – Middlesborough Sports Village – 11-5-19

The day started off a little cloudy and around 10oC, which lifted a little as the morning progressed, but the promised rain did turn up for our final activity (a medal ceremony) just before we left. Ruby Colver was first up with the girls U13 800m, setting herself a PB of 3:00.61 and taking the …

NEGP 1 – Monkton Stadium 24-4-19

Well the records were claimed, broken and PBs were bettered in a really successful first GP track meeting for TBH juniors. The evening started around 12C and got just a little cooler, but the wind was fairly low giving us near ideal conditions for competing. U13 and U15 events were combined based on a seeding …

Rain and hail greeted approx 850 children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 as they arrived from primary schools across the region to compete in the Newcastle Schools Cross Country Championships  at Blakelaw Playing Fields. Familiar TBH Junior faces were spotted through the crowds as they warmed up with their individual schools.  First to …

Spring Track Relays – Churchill Playing Fields Track, Monkseaton – 10-3-19

(IP – There’s a special addition at the end so do keep reading to the bottom.) On turning up at the track, there were sighs of disappointment from the usual mud-larks who were missing cross country already, as early on it was 15°C with bright sunshine and no wind. This turned out to be an …

Birtley Relays – Lord Lawson School 10-3-19

Getting to the course early and setting the tent up seemed a little pointless, as conditions were dry with no wind at all. This later proved to be a very sensible decision, as the weather got progressively worse throughout the morning, with the final U15/U17 race 3rd leg being run in driving wet snow, so …

NEHL 6 – Alnwick Castle 02-03-19

With only the Birtley relays to go, this was the penultimate XC fixture for the juniors in the 2018-19 season. Much warmer than the previous year with the wind picking up a little for the later races, overall the conditions were very dry. The unexpected and unwelcome addition of many tonnes of hardcore to the …

National Cross Country Championships – Harewood House (Leeds) 23-2-19

It’s a great achievement and something to look back on for years to come, to represent your club at the National XC champs, and the following TBH juniors are now able to do that. Very dry and unusually warm conditions led to several complaints from the U13 girls about the heat during their race. The …

NEHL 6 – Thornley 09-02-19

Farewell to the junior’s tent – Thornley Hall Farm 9-2-19. Well the forecasted 40mph winds materialised, and the tent was unable to cope with the strain. She’s served us well over the past few years, but I had to put her out of her misery when I got home. Hopefully we will have a new …

NEHL 5 – Temple Park 05-01-19

On what was can best be described as a fairly chilly but dry day, TBH juniors did their best to run off all the mince pies they consumed over the Christmas period in the Sherman cup for the boys, and the Davison Shield for the girls, at Temple Park in South Shields today (Saturday 5-1-19) …
