Mark Shaw and Charlie Pasco have both been selected to represent the North East in the London Mini Marathon next month. Well done to both of them!!
At the Snake Lane 10 miler on Sunday, Ricky Stevenson broke his own course record and club record by 24 seconds - in a time of 48.03. Needless to say he felt he should have dipped below 48 minutes!
This takes Ricky to the top of the UK 10mile rankings for 2011.
The was also an official pb for Sarah Rogers, but she was disapointed, as she had run the first 10miles at the Brass Monkey half marathon quicker.
All club finishers:
“Most inclines come in the first 15 miles…….” so said the route guide. The Health & Safety team must have been on overtime putting out all the ‘steep incline’, ‘steep decline’ and ‘tight bend’ signs all around the 26 mile course. Kath Aspin, Nick O’Grady and Steve Cram joined the 972 starters for the inaugural running of this race. The route followed the Lakeside Way rarely leaving the shores of Kielder Water.
