WTCS Triathon Leeds, 12th June 2022

Well done to Sonam Wangdi, who competed in the World Triathlon Championship Series event at Roundhay Park in Leeds today.

parkrun, 11th June 2022

A bright but breezy morning for the North East parkruns. The Town Moor event was called off at fairly short notice, so a lot of runners choose to have a warm-up run across to Leazes Park which delayed the start to accomodate them.
