Tyne Bridge Harriers celebrated their official 1st Anniversary this week.
It was 12 months ago that 14 members of Tyne Bridge Harriers (then under the short lived name of Newcastle Harriers) got together at the East End Pool in Byker for the very first training session. The session consisted of 8 x 0.5 miles with 90 seconds recovery.
On Tuesday 17th January 2012, 58 members of Tyne Bridge Harriers congregated at the same location to take part in the 4th Race of the TBH Winter GP.
In just 12 months the club has grown massively & gained over 120 new members of all abilities. The club has made its mark on the North East Running Circuit as we continue to move up the league tables in local competition. Our membership is growing rapidly on a weekly basis and it is why Tyne Bridge Harriers are one of the most popular and fastest growing North East Running Clubs.
2012 promises to be another excellent & exciting year for the club as we continue to enter teams into all the main competitions and races throughout the season including the NEHL XC Events & the Northern Athletics Track & Field league where we will be joining forces with Heaton Harriers.
We also see the launch of our very own RUN:TBH Magazine next month.
We expect to see our membership continue to develop and rise significantly as the word continues to spread about not only the quality of training that is delivered at weekly sessions, but also the friendliness and support that the club offers to all of its athletes.
If you are currently looking for assistance with your training and would like to be part of a new forward thinking club & our growing success, we’d love to see you. Whether you are an established runner or someone taking there very first running steps.
Come along to one of our sessions held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We meet in the foyer at The East End Pool & Library, Shields Road, Byker from 18:00 & sessions start at 18:30
We have 5 different training groups, from fast paced runners to slower runners and those who are returning from injury. There is a group for everyone and no-one gets left behind in training.
Come and try a few sessions to see if its what you are looking for before you make any decision to join.
