Blaydon Races: 9th of June

Well done to all the members who completed the 151st Blaydon Races, especially in conditions best suited to sunbathing beside a pool as opposed to running six(ish) miles from Newcastle to Blaydon.

There were some scintillating performances, with Marc Fenwick (16th overall) and Steve Cairns (1st M45-54) just two to mention, but with temperatures touching the high 70’s – and very little wind to cool the runners – everyone who finished  truly earned their bottle of beer (given away in the goodie bag).

Race report to follow.

  1. please contact me if your name is missing from the above results, cheers.

    And many thanks to all the members that took part in the race. It was fantastic experience seeing so many TBH vests in such an iconic race.

    Well done everyone! Very chuffed with my time. It’s my first proper race since 9th June 2012 and I have taken 3 minutes off last year’s time (admittedly last year I was carrying an injury and had to walk several times). Still a long way to get to where I want to be (and where I was in 2010) but making good progress.

    Fantastic turnout from TBH in very warm conditions, special mention must to go to all the cheers and support at the start, along Scotswood Road and at the finish! Really appreciated!

    Made a pleasant change watching the race rather than competing, don’t know if I’d rather have been running though, tadge too warm for me.

    Well done everyone, we probably had one of the biggest turnouts from any club and there were some sparkling performances along the way.
