The North East Harrier League (sponsored by Start Fitness) returns on Saturday, 11th October, with the first fixture taking place at East Cramlington Nature Reserve (NE23 6XF).
After two successive promotions, Tyne Bridge Harriers men found themselves in Division One last year and were pipped to the title by Durham City Harriers in the final fixture of the season.
After finishing in 2nd place, the club will be aiming to go one step better this year.
For the TBH ladies, last season was about consolidating their place in Division One – eventually finishing in 5th place. Can they break into the top 3 in 2014/15?
All members are welcome to take part in the Harrier League, regardless of which training group they run in or whether they’ve ran cross-country before.
All the club ask’s is that members do their best and enjoy the event.
