As usual the racing weekend began on the Saturday with many members attending various parkruns around our region with the following achieving PB’s.
At Sedgefield, Rob Young ran in 21.08 and Jan McLuckie in 36.58. Ian Baronowski then achieved a course PB at Darlington Parkrun in 26.07. Julie Nisbet achieved her course PB at Shild Parkrun on 24.57.
Finally at Chester le Street Parkrun, Carrieann Ingledew achieved a PB of 38.36 with Lisa Dowell achieving her PB of 38.35.
In addition on the Saturday one member, Andrew Lumley travelled to run 10l at the Cragside Estate in Northumberland.
The race was set in the grounds and incorporated the hills and apparently this led to a good downhill finish. Andrew enjoyed the race and completed the same in 51.09.
On Sunday many members arrived in Hartlepool for the annual Marine 5 mile race. This is a popular race for the club members and there was a great turnout from the club.
The race starts near to the museum in the Marina and leads you on to the promenade all the way along to the dunes at Seaton Carew before turning you back for the fiish which is close to the start area.
Fortunately the weather conditions were kind and were perfect for the race and the good weather meant there were plenty of spectators along the way.
