TBH Summer Grand Prix: Race 2 results.

On a breezy summer’s evening, a magnificent eighty runners turned out for the 2nd race of the 2013 Summer Series.

And leading the race from start to finish was Paul Brown, clocking a time of 22:49. Although this was the second race of the series, it was the first to implement a yacht handicap system (with slower runners setting off first, followed by faster runners at predetermined intervals). Paul, who had a 5 minute advantage over the second runner to set off, was never in danger of being caught and it will be interesting to chart his progress over the remainder of the series.

First female finisher was Anne Grenfell, in 23:30. Congratulations to Paul and Anne.

Quickest time of the evening went to David Beech, who covered the two mile course in a rapid 10:30, whilst fastest female was Sophie Marr, with a time of 12:36.

Well done to everyone who competed and many thanks to the army of volunteers who performed admirably on the night.

The next race will take place on Tuesday, 4th June.

    Taking into accout the volunteers, we must have had over 100 members involved last night.

    My first Tyne Bridge Event , the team spirit is awesome- can’t wait for my first race. Well done Paul – it takes a special runner to concentrate, compete and stay focused . You have all those qualities in abundance excellent running.
