This week’s training sessions are;


Tuesday 4th November: TBH Winter Grand Prix – Race 2

An exact 5k race along the Quayside, crossing two iconic bridge’s over the Tyne – the Swing Bridge and Millennium Bridge. The race is handicapped – meaning slower runners set off before the faster runners – with the finishing times from race 1 being used as competitors handicaps. New runners to the club are welcome to take part, and don’t worry if you didn’t compete in race 1 as your current form in training and recent races will be taken into consideration when handicaps are set.
