1st lad for the club to cross the finish line was Matthew Alderson knocking almost a minute off last year with a chip time of 30.55 and our 1st lass was Eleanor Bradbury who in recent years has missed the race due to being at University. Eleanor crossed the line in a very impressive 35.36.
The full list of results for all our Blaydon runners can be found at this link:
All our runners worked together at the start of the race helping load baggage buses which was a great help so thank you to you all for pulling together with some great teamwork.
A few of the women used the bus trip into Newcastle as an opportunity to get a ‘Go Faster Plait’ in their hair from Bernie James. The perks of having a hairdresser on the team!!
After the race the lads and lasses had some congratulating to do as a lot of the team had achieved PBs, many of them knocking minutes off last years times.
We have a selection of photos from the event, many taken by John McPhail, a few from the Chronicle, some by our runners on their own cameras or phones, before and after the race and thank you to Sharon Armstong for taking a lot of the photos at the turn from the flyover and cheering on the rest of the team with her daughter, Arantxa who waved a Blaydon Vest in full support.
Also, in addition to photos in this album you may find images at facebook page https://www.facebook.com/IHphotographyNewcastle/?fref=ts as Ian has a few albums of the race.
Well Done Everyone!!
