On Sunday 13th April, while the London Marathon was taking place, a popular local event was also well attended – the Sand Dancer 10k (incorporating the NEMAA 10k Multi Terrain Championships).
On a bright though very breezy day, two Birtley lads battled their way around South Shields Leas – Peter Gill who finished 6th in his age category with a time of 40 minutes dead, and Gerard Murray who gained one of his best 10k times this season. Well done lads – hopefully there may be a few more Birtley athletes running in this event in years to come!
