A number of Birtley runners were out dodging walkers, dogs and bikes to complete the Watergate 5k race. The two lap race loops around the central lake before coming back round to finish by the playing fields. This 5k was the final race in a series of three hosted by Lowfell. First in for Birtley was Lee Millmore finishing 3rd position overall and improving his 5k time from the week before by over 20 seconds denying Morpeth a 1, 2 ,3 on the podium. Next was Dave Coulson in 58th position sporting a nice tan back from his recent holiday. Dave had previously raced in the first two races of the series and came away as overall series winner. Excellent. Pat Kelly never to shy away from a race was 93rd. The Watergate 5k incorporates the North East Vets 5k championships and Pats result seen him picking up Bronze medal for his age category. Also racing were three of Birtley’s youths running in the combined age category race around one lap of the 5k course. Luke Kelly worked hard to come in first for the Under 11 boys category. Lukes sister Laura battled all the way to the line to finish 2nd in her Under 11 girls category. Danielle Coulson also sporting a nice tan had a brave run and finished 1st out of the Under 13 Girls.
