Saturday saw Tommy Millmore hold his regular 5k time trial at Rainton Meadows, with a number of athletes achieving new PBs.
Sunday there were some organised races at Dalton Park, and Chris Perkins cruised home in first place in the 5k, with Katie Francis finishing shortly after him as first female over the linen (at 19:03 an astonishing 4 minutes clear of the next female finisher!), and Noah Williamson placing second in his 2k race, just behind an U15! They were joined by quite a few others from the club, both juniors and seniors, and despite the abysmal weather today, they all have smiles on their faces, so they have obviously had a good run!
Results from the 5k can be seen HERE whilst the 2k results are HERE.
The couch to 5k group were led out on an almost 7 mile trail run today by Lee, who showed no mercy by making them run up to Penshaw Monument at the end of 6 miles! Smiles all around from them too, which just goes to show how running is great for your mental as well as physical health - please get yourself out there even if you can't make it to club sessions!
