Well done to all the members who took part in the Prudhoe Miners 10k Road Race (Sunday, 22nd Sept 2013).
David Beech was first the TBH member to finish, coming home in 2nd place overall (behind race winner Steve Rankin – Sunderland Strollers) in a time of 35:18.
Next up were David Moir (5th overall) and Cees van der Land (6th) with times of 36:12 and 36:35 respectively.
UPDATE: Thanks to the efforts of the two David’s and Cees, Tyne Bridge were winners of the Men’s Team prize.
David Johnson – a member of Thurrock Harriers but currently training with TBH whilst working in the North East – finished 8th, with DD managing to cross the line in 10th place.
The event, organised by Run Nation and sponsored by SCA Hygiene, is unusual in the fact that it’s a new race that actually that takes place on the public highway. Nowadays, most road races are being forced off the roads and onto bridal ways, footpaths etc. so many thanks must go to Prudhoe Town Council for allowing this race to proceed and for doing a great job in directing what (little) traffic was on the road. Thanks also to the many marshals and volunteers for making this a terrific event.
Completing the group of TBH members in the race were Andy Harrison (18th), Adrian Brooks (43rd), Jasmine Black (57th), Emma Moir (84th) and Emma Brooks (126th).
There were 154 finishers in the race, with most agreeing it was one of the hardest races they’ve ever ran, but an event which will surely grow in popularity in the years to come.
Following the 10k prize presentation, there were a couple of junior races (one for under 9’s and another for under 11’s) with Tyne Bridge having four representatives in the under 9’s.
First girl back in the under 9’s race was Frances Grierson, a frequent visitor to TBH Junior Sessions, who was quickly followed by Jake & Hope Moir, Millie Rowe and Lucy Grenfell.
