Tuesday evening saw the return of the Bridges of the Tyne 5 mile race after a delay of two years due to covid and another one of the quayside events which are pretty flat and fast as runners complete an out and back route. Barry Talman was first of our three runners across the line in 31:09 finishing in 53rd position, twenty five seconds ahead of Jeff Miller in 59th with Karl Hume our third runner to finish in 32.58 for 76th. Great work gentleman.

Now we don’t normally cover parkrun in the roundup as this is a run rather than a race but there’s a couple of notable shout-outs that is worth a mention. Laurie Cummings is making a name for himself around the UK as he clocked up his 92nd parkrun V80 record, the latest taking place at Windy Nook while Ollie Curran set a new JM10 course record for the South Park junior parkrun this weekend with a blistering 7min 22! Amazing achievements from you both.
