Well we were out in force on what was a lovely sunny morning at North Tyneside.
For those that don’t know the route it’s a lovely 10k from North Shields Fish Quay all along the coast to Tynemouth, sneaky hill up by the priory and then you follow the path all the way through Cullercoats, Whitley Bay and finish at St. Mary’s Lighthouse. What a way to spend your Easter Sunday! The headwind didn’t put us off and coming in first for Team Elswick were the fast lads …Paul Turner 10th – 35:26, Paul Jones 61st – 38:35, Steve Robertson 71st – 39:01, Mark McNally 126th – 40:32, Dave Jardin 237th – 43:06, Harry 125 Matthews 254th – 43:25, Lee Coulson 301st – 44:06, Phil Colver 403rd – 45:54, Lady Captain Kim Matthews 422nd – 46:12, Rob Emson 472nd – 47:02, little old me trying to hide behind tall people 474th – 47:03, Patrick Gordon 531st – 47:49, ever competitive Marie 573rd – 48:19, Micky Side Show 595th – 48:41, Emma Fraser 917th – 52:59, Michelle Coleman 972nd – 53:45, the Legend that is Christine Lee 1037th – 54:30, Jackie Long Legs 1127th – 55:36, flying Tina McIver 1320th – 58:23, Nigel Hollier 1417th – 59:59.
Thanks to all Team Elswick supporting on the day, Jo and Mel half way, Iain and kiddies at the park shouting encouragement, towards the home stretch little Stevie, Andy, Denise, Katy, Gary, Chris and many more, all cheering and taking photos as without you racing doesn’t happen. A great day out and even though we lost most of our group when everyone put the Blue T Shirt on, I think I can say on behalf of all runners what a lovely morning at the seaside and am sure we all be there next year!
