NEHL Druridge Bay, 10th October 2021

It was another unseasonably warm afternoon for cross-country, with sun cream once again the order of the day. Each cross-country venue has its own character and Druridge Bay Country Park makes for a nice setting but an unusual course. The start and finish areas are on very uneven fields, there are no real hills just …

Kielder 10K, 2nd October 2021

Michael Teasdale and Lena Webster-Costella took part in the Kielder 10K. This is a tough 10K in any conditions, but must have been particularly difficult in the heavy rain – not to mention the wind.

NEHL Wrekenton, 25th September 2021

It was cross-country, Jim, but not as we know it! ** Instead of spikes, mud, wellies, coats and bobble hats, it was road shoes, sun-cream and shades for the start of the 2021 North Eastern Harrier League season at Wrekenton! The ground was dry and rock-hard; the long, cut grass at the start and finish …

parkrun, 18th September 2021

After the influx of visitors last week due to the Great North Run, it was business as usual at the local parkruns this morning – though a number of runners were sporting GNR t-shirts!

parkrun, 11th September 2021

The proximity to the GNR also meant that a lot of Sky Blues chose to marshal, have an easy run …
