Redcar Half Marathon. Sunday 30th September

The Redcar Half Marathon is a regional championship standing race. The race which attracts a strong field of good local club runners, took place on Sunday. Elswick’s V40 athlete, Jude Nutt had a superb race, finishing as 1st placed FIRST FEMALE ATHLETE, with a time of 1.25.10. Only 33 male runners were in front of Jude. Congratulations! As you can see from the photo below, A trio of Elswick lads running in unison, Martin Connelly (1.27.28 & 55th), Shaun Connelly (1.27.33 57th) and John Bell (1.27.23 V55) finished within a second or three of each other. Shaun ran a half marathon PB and John claimed a top podium spot in his age group category. Well done gents, no doubt some canny pacing going on throughout the race!

Taking a step back to the 2015 Redcar Half Harathon, Elswick’s Justina Heslop won the womens race and Elswick’s Tadele Geremew won the mens  race with times of 76 mins & 70 mins respectively. The club has certainly had some notable success, across almost all of the age group categories over the years at this championship race. Cheers, GB
