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 more participation in races. This is largely targeted at juniors from year 7 onwards, but there are a few keen year 6s who are members. I put on 3 optional sessions a week, and I ask that the members commit to racing at least 6 times a year for TBH, in order to join.
I have 2 children (Jake and Hope) who are both members of TBH and train with the racing group.
