Müller have kindly offered us three pairs of tickets for the Müller Grand Prix/Diamond League event at Gateshead Stadium on Tuesday 13th July (5.50pm - 9pm) . If you would like to be considered for the tickets, please email me as soon as possible (deadline is Saturday evening) with the names of the people who would like to go. I need a name for each ticket you request, and will consider giving out more than two tickets, depending on responses, so if you wish to apply as a family, please do so.
Calling all Senior Men, Vet men, Senior Women and Vet Women!
After some very good recruitment during Covid, along with loads of good consistent training from existing members, we have chance to get our toes on the line as a team, and put Birtley back up there at the Northern 6-stage (Men) and 4-stage (Women) road relays on September 18th at Redcar. Minimum age for the Senior's event is 17 on 31st August.
Each leg is approx 6.0km for Men and Women and it also serves as a qualifying race for the English Road Relay Championships (Men only), with the top 25 teams here qualifying for the national event which is scheduled to be on 9th October. We can enter more than one team to the Northerns, so please do say if you'd like to run, even if we already have 6 names. It would be great to get a couple of teams in as preparation for the 12-stage which will be held in March 2022.
Obviously we still have Covid to contend with, but at present this is going ahead and so we should prepare for it as normal. If closer to the time circumstances change we will worry about that then, but for now lets get our names down and some teams entered and put all the hard work to some use!
You can book your request to be on the team by placing a refundable deposit using this link.
Any questions, please contact Adrian Bailes or comment below.
