At the midweek NEGP at Monkton stadium there were some very impressive performances from our junior athletes in both track and field disciplines. Alex Boyer’s 9.04 in the 3000m and Dylan Wilson’s 2.06 800m two of those listed below that are worth a special mention. Two huge personal bests for the athletes. Zara Jones took 5 seconds of her 800m best, Rowan Steel’s 2.15 was a 23 second PB while Savannah Tarn reduced her best by 10 seconds. Macy Kelly took over 1 minute of her previous 3000m best, team mate Freya Talman made a 46 second improvement.

Well done Hugo and anyone else competing on the day.

Sunday saw the new Great North 10k (not to be confused with the previously known Great North 10k, now known as the Gateshead 10k), a race that is performed along the quayside making it a flat and fast course with very little undulation. Some top performances on the day from all of our Harrier’s, big PB’s for Dean Standish and Ted Kerby breaking 36 and 40 minutes respectively and sandwiched between Iain McCulloch who also shaved a few seconds of his previous best. Stephen Dent placed 3rd V55 with an impressive 41.20. Michael Watson was so fast during his race that they repeated his surname twice…..

Some fabulous performances from our Couch 2 beyond ground, Trevor Mitchell leading the troops who may need a bigger medal cabinet with all of the races he’s completed in 2022. Well done all of you.
