Where We Meet

Tyne Bridge Harriers hold weekly training sessions throughout the year.

Tuesday & Thursday

East End Pool & Library, Byker

Our main training sessions take place on Tuesday & Thursday evenings.  Our club HQ and meeting place for these sessions is; East End Pool, Hadrian Square, Byker, Newcastle Upon Tyne NE6 1AL.  We meet from 18:00 with the main session starting at 18:30. Specific training sessions are scheduled for these evenings by Club Coach Simon Kristiansen. Always an excellent quality training session guaranteed.  At training sessions, there are a number of groups of different pace abilities so there is always someone to train / run with.


Tyne Bridge Harriers run a beginner’s session on Wednesday evenings for anyone who is completely new to running and who would like to experience the benefits and enjoyment of this leisure activity. It will not involve speed work and will purely be about getting into the sport and experiencing the benefits of doing so with the support of a running club. Runners may then choose to progress into Group 5 for more structured training if they wish to do so.

The Wednesday session may also appeal to those runners who have had time out (due to injury or other reasons) and who would like a slow return to running. As the pace and distance of the session will be dictated by the ability of the slowest runner, it will not be suitable for faster and more experienced runners who will probably find the sessions frustrating.

The sessions – which are free – run on Wednesday evenings leaving East End pool, Byker at 6.30pm. We generally run about 3 miles. This will often be along the Quayside and, during the summer months, Jesmond Dene.  Our leaders who take the beginner’s group are Vicki Deritis, Rob Kirtley & Harry Ransome.

If you know of anyone who would like to try running but who may not have the confidence to try it alone, then please feel free to tell them about these sessions. Likewise, if you’re a TBH who has stopped running (for whatever reason) and think that these sessions may be suitable for you, then please come along.

If you require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Saturday – Track

Our track session takes place Churchill Playing Fields (Track), Whitley Bay commencing at 10:30 every Saturday morning and is run by experienced Club Coach, Dave Anderson
