On a very warm Wednesday evening at South Park saw the return of the ‘Run 4 Louis’ 1 mile and 5km events organised by Sam Richardson. This event supports the 4Louis charity which works across the country to support anyone affected by miscarriage, stillbirth and the death of a baby or child. Was great to see the event supported by so many harriers on and off the racing line for such a worthy cause. Big thanks to everyone who supported the event.

Jade also took part in the mixed teams event on day 2 clearly making the most of her trip. Great work Jade.

David Nalder was another to race this weekend. the Lambton 10k which is a mixed terrain, rural undulating course taking in the countryside scenes from BBC Drama The Paradise, including the magnificent Lambton Castle. The race is aimed at club and recreational runners alike and each runner will receive tickets and a pitch side photo to a home SAFC game season (North East’s biggest club) 22/23 (David, you know who you can pass these too 🙂 )

Meeting the qualifying time for your age category does not guarantee entry into the event, but simply the opportunity to submit an application. The maximum number of GFA places is 6,000 (3,000 men and 3,000 women). Places will be allocated on a ‘fastest first’ basis comparative to your age and the qualifying time.
If you have a GFA qualifying time that is less than 10 minutes under the qualifying time for your age group, we advise you to still enter the 2023 TCS London Marathon ballot (the opening date will be announced by 2 October 2022) to increase your chances of gaining a place.

Iain McCulloch is looking to raise £1,000 to raise awareness of suicide in young men – in memory of Andrew Raine and Iain’s brother Alastair. Iain and a group of family and friends are cycling the C2C route across England, during the first week in August. This initiative is in the memory of those young men who have lost their life with proceeds split between Samaritans and Mind with a hope that this money is used to reach out to people who are in a similar position. Tremendous thing to do Iain, well done.
