Training Sessions: w/c 4th November 2013

This week’s training sessions are;


Tuesday 5th November

Race 2 of the Winter Series, an exact 5k race along the Quayside which crosses two iconic bridge’s across the Tyne – Millennium Bridge and the Swing Bridge.

The 1st race of the Series was a scratch race, where every runner started at the same time, and their finishing times are adjusted to suit Tuesday’s event. If you were not in the 1st race don’t worry as your current form in training and any recent races will be taken into consideration when the Handicaps are set.

For runners not familiar with handicap races, basically the slower runners start before the faster runners and if everything goes to plan everybody finishes at the same time!

Competitors are asked to register at Byker Pool between 6:00 – 6:30pm before making their way to Low Walker for the 7:00pm start.

Further details about the event can be found here and a map of the route here.

(the event requires lots of marshals and stewards, so if you want to help out in any way we’d love to hear from you).
