Harrier League at Bedewell Park, Jarrow @ Bedewell Park | Jarrow | United Kingdom
The second Harrier league match of the season takes place at Bedewell Park, just opposite Monkton Stadium and yes – it IS on a Sunday. Remember, if you’re not running, please come along and give our athletes some vocal support :) There is lots of parking available at Monkton Stadium, but please be aware it’s a pay and display car-park, and wardens DO patrol it regularly, even on a Sunday. The stadium has changing facilities and toilets, and if you’re lucky the shop may be open for snacks! This was the course last year – it may not be quite the same route this time around but it should give you an idea of what to expect. This was the senior ladies course – the men’s course is another lap and juniors’ course will be shorter.
