Exhibition Park 5k Cup: Results

Congratulations to Tadele Geremew (Elswick Harriers) on a fabulous victory in the inaugural Exhibition Park 5k Cup.

The event, hosted by Tyne Bridge Harriers, witnessed a titanic battle between Geremew and Ian Hudspith (Morpeth Harriers), with the Elswick athlete eventually pulling away in the final 100 metres and taking the honours by a single second; Geremew 15:13, Hudspith 15:14.

Daniel Jenkin (Durham City Harriers) finished in 3rd place, Marc Fenwick of host club Tyne Bridge Harriers finished 4th, with Daniel Johnson (Gateshead Harriers) completing the Top 5 finishers.

It was a rewarding day for Wallsend Harriers as Danielle Hodgkinson stormed to victory in the Ladies Race, her time of 17:53 also placing her 23rd overall.

Completing the Ladies Top 5 were Emma Holt (Morpeth Harriers), Mareike Jakschik (Newcastle University AC), Suzanne Thew (North Shields Polytechnic) and Jordan Mullinger (Tyne Bridge Harriers).

Host club, Tyne Bridge, swept the board in the team awards, claiming success all four categories.

    I absolutely loved this race. Well except for the wind, which made it really hard! Thank you so much to all the marshalls, your encouragement really kept me going and I think was a factor in me doing so well! Looking forward to the next race…!!
