Race 6 - Bridges of the Tyne 5 Mile Tue 9th July 2013

So we gathered on Newcastle Quayside on a hot sticky evening for the sixth race of this year's Grand Prix, The Bridges of the Tyne 5 Mile event hosted by Tyne Bridge Harriers. Dressed in running gear we were obtaining strange glances from the multitudes of people just strolling or cycling along the Quayside on such a pleasant evening, not to mention the hundreds sitting in the numerous bars. With this many people around it looked as though the race was going to be chaotic, but apart from a congested start, good marshalling ensured that the race progressed very smoothly.

Starting on the north of the river between the Tyne and Millennium Bridges the route takes the runners west along the Quayside before turning at the Newcastle Business Park and returning eastwards to finish on the Quayside adjacent to the mouth of the Ouseburn, running under or past seven of the bridges of the Tyne.

First back of the 35 Blyth runners taking part was Jake in an excellent 11th position with a time of 29:10, closely followed 3 seconds later by Peter Brown. First Blyth female was Heather Christopher in 88th overall in 33:57, both Peter and Heather were second in their respective age categories.
