Coach Profile: David Moir

I am a Founder member of Tyne Bridge Harriers and have been running since 2003. I tend to focus on the longer races, targeting a couple of marathons a year, but my favorite discipline is definitely cross country. I have recently (Sept 18) set up the Racing Group at TBH juniors, in order to encourage …

I started running when I was at school. Loved nothing better than a x country. Running around a muddy field, can’t beat that. As my teenage years went by my distances became shorter until I was running 400m, no one likes them! After I left school my running stopped for a few years until I …

I started running 23 years ago mainly to get one hours peace each day from my small children. I have been running with TBH (my first running club) for the past 5 years. I enjoy running longer distances and events that are a little bit different. My best ever day running was during my only …

I started running at junior school and used to really love cross country.  Unfortunately at senior school girls weren’t allowed to do cross country, which was very annoying as I had to go and watch my two big brothers run instead. I didn’t take up running again until the age of 30, after I had …

My wife Jessica (otherwise know as ‘The Boss’ in the household) and I are really joggers, not proper runners, and as such run with TBH Groups 4/5.

I started running at school but was only interested in track sessions. After leaving school I never ran for several years but then in January 2014 I wanted to lose a bit weight so my sister-in-law suggested running. When I stopped laughing I said ‘I’ll give it ago’. We went for our first run together …

Coach Profile: Jamie Lee

I started running 6 years ago, generally off and on but wasn’t making much progress so decided to join a local running club. I had a look at the local running clubs and came across Tyne Bridge Harriers. After a few sessions I knew they were the club for me and I’ve never looked back …

Coach Profile: Paul O’Mara

I started running when I was 14 for the school cross-country team and my local athletics club, which at the time was down south. Between the ages of 15 – 21 I raced regularly at different distances, up to half marathon distance, but then in my early 20’s I picked up a serious foot injury …

Coach Profile: Kathryn Stevenson

I was never a regular runner. I would enter an odd race with a friend and we would always start the race and cross the finish line together. I didn’t know I would be given an actual placing and official time! That all changed when I joined Tyne Bridge Harriers in 2014. I started in …
