Following last weekend’s Great North Run, it has been announced Tyne Bridge Harriers were the top rated affiliated club in the race.
The GNR was the third round of the 2014 Great Run Club Challenge, a competition for affiliated clubs and registered athletes promoted by Great Run in partnership with England Athletics.
To qualify, clubs had to be affiliated with England Athletics and field at least seven male and seven female registered athletes.
