    Gerard (Pedro) Murray – a true legend

    Yesterday was a sad day for North East athletics, as one of our most long-standing members, Gerard Murray, popularly known as Pedro, passed away after a short but brave battle with cancer. Gerard showed the same grit and determination in fighting his illness as he did in every race he ran, always giving... Continue reading »

    Thank you and good night….till next year.

    The Masters track GP season drew to a close tonight. The finale was a great couple of relays at the end. The last couple of events have, for one reason or another...normally work or injury ...been only Shannel and myself competing.

    Tonight we had eight athletes turn out, and even had... Continue reading »

    Masters Champs, Monkton June 17th

    Saturday was a great day for me. Always banging the drum for the masters league, but Saturday wasn't the league, it was a one off championship meeting, and although I only tend to do one event at the league meetings, this time I did two. It was a shame, that there was only Shannel and I competing... Continue reading »

    What do Grangemouth, London, Madrid and Manchester all have in common?

We had people competing across a whole range of events, in not one, but three different... Continue reading »

Aykley heads… Part 2!

So, a brief detail about the results from Aykley Heads, and this only applies to the senior/vets race. With the ‘North Easterns’ traditionally being used to decide... Read more »

Aykley Heads 2016

This tale started a week early, as we ventured to the course behind Durham County Hall. Sunday run is regularly round Beamish woods but I am under immense pressure from Youngy to find a different route each week, and this was a pre-determined route that I couldn’t be blamed for. So we met at the... Read more »

You know every cloud… And all that… My usual car sharers didn’t want to share this week. Stephanie committed at home, and Adrian running at Liverpool, but I have a new best mate…Phil Atkinson stepped up and replaced Stephanie very effectively.

Well, that went down well…

I don’t know quite what to expect cos I have increased my mileage lately (the last couple months) and run quite often now with two of our, maybe faster lads once or twice a week. The race this week has an overall result, and is measured over every age group performance so, you score extra... Read more »

Lest we forget…13 November cos it’s the nearest Sunday to 11th

Same routine as ever, preparation the night before was a Chinese curry, and a bottle of wine. They do say red wine is high in iron, an important ingredient for stamina production, so I suppose a small tipple the night before can be justified. I had arranged to pick Mrs Young up on the way...
