Dan and Tom shine over 800m in BMC Series

British Milers Club 800 series

Chester-le Street

Monady 20th June, 2016


The British Milers Club series of middle distance races continued with a top quality turnout at Chester-le-Street for the latest round of 800m races on Monday 20th June.

Tynedale featured strongly in the A race with Lea Stephenson taking on pace-making duties for Greg Urwin and Tom Joyce. Tom was rewarded for his commitment with a new pb of 1m 56.2 in 3rd place. Sadly for Greg he was unable to match his recent good form and missed out on another opportunity to make the qualifying time for entry into this weekend’s Olympic trials. Jonny Currie also missed out in his quest for the qualifying time with a 1m 53.07s clocking last weekend in the Netherlands and was an interested spectator at Chester-le-Street.

The E race featured not only Olympian Laura Weightman (a late entry as part of her preparations for Rio) but also Tynedale’s emerging talent Dan Joyce. Dan has been in sparkling form recently and ran a well-judged race against experienced opposition to finish strongly and snatch second place with Laura just behind in 4th.   His superb new pb of 2m 04.7s. moves him up to 23rd in the national u15 rankings and he is currently the UK’s fastest 13-year-old.

Tynedale 800m looks as strong as it’s ever been with a remarkable 5 athletes ranked in the top 25 regionally and Dan Joyce topping the regional rankings from the bottom half of the u15 age group. The future looks bright indeed for Tynedale’s middle distance talent.

Track & Field News Update

Its been an outstanding start to the Track & Field Season with some notable performances form our teams and individuals.

North East youth Development League NEYDL

Our Junior (U13, U15, U17) athletes won the opening event at Wentworth by a huge margin. It was a tall order to follow. The second event was held at Jarrow on 22nd May. The margin was reduced but the result was the same, Tynedale won the second event and remain top of the table.

There were some great performances, the athletes had a great day and represented our club in an exemplary fashion.

If any Juniors need more information about competing in the NEYDL please ask Katy Colmer or any of the Coaches.


Northern Athletics Senior League

The Seniors are matching the Juniors for results this season. They racked up their second win, making it two out of two, of the season on the 5th June at Wentworth. It was great to see so many turn out to represent the club on the track.

If you fancy competing for the Seniors then please get in touch with Doug Maxwell or some of the Senior athletes (Darren, Lea, Katy, Megan, Steph, Gill…). U17’s can compete in the Senior League and the team are looking for a few more Ladies in particular.

You can check out Alan Currie’s video of the days events HERE

Tynedale Seniors


Adam Pratt

Adam has had a great week reaping the rewards of some hard and dedicated training. An 800m PB (1:56.7) in Glasgow on Friday 3rd June, a 1500m PB (4:04.8) in Chester-le-Street on Monday 6th June and a 21st Place in the Blaydon Race on 9th June.

Adam Blaydon



Dan Joyce is running some amazing times for an U15 athlete. He ran a PB, of 2:05.9, on Wednesday night at the NEGP which sees him well up the UK rankings a year young in the age group.

In the same meeting Dan’s brother Tom went head to head with Lea Stephenson in the 400m. Lea came out on top with a run of 50.4 secs but Tom (U17) recorded a PB of 51.4.

Paddy Lally was one of only two runners to take on the 2000m Steeple Chase. It was Paddy’s first attempt at racing the Steeple Chase and he looked strong. He is hoping to run the 1500m at the County Championships.

There were a total of 16 athletes from Tynedale at the NEGP.


Hannah and Charlie Pinkney

Hannah, and Mum Charlie, had outstanding races representing GB in the European Age Group Triathlon Championships. Hannah was overheard to say that the running training she has been putting in proved invaluable in the closing stages of the race. Hannah won Silver and Charlie Bronze in their respective age groups.

K2216106 Tri Stars. Charlie Pinkney and daughter Hannah both represented Great Britain at the European Triathlon Championships, Hannah claiming a silver medal.


County Championships

Good luck to all the Minors, Junior, Inter and Senior Athletes competing in the County Championships this month.

NEYDL 1st May 2016

The first NEYDL of the season was held at Wentworth Leisure Centre on 1st May 2016. Sam’s attire for the Javelin sums up the weather conditions


Despite the strong, bitterly cold wind Tynedale Harriers Juniors were outstanding. The numbers that we lacked last year were not evident on this occasion and we won the fixture by a huge margin. If we keep this up promotion back up to Division One is guaranteed.

Well done to you all. Look out for the final results being published on NECAA Website

Loads of photographs of the day can be found here HERE

Tynedale 10k and 10/15 Mile Jelly Tea 2016

Entries are now open for the clubs’ two races this year.  The Tynedale 10k will be held on Wednesday the 6th July and the Jelly Tea will be on the 18th September 2016.

The 10k is on a fast, flat, rural route along minor roads and tracks, followed by a pie ‘n pea supper at Ovingham Middle School.  The 10 mile has an option for 15 miles this year.  The hilly nature of it’s route is compensated by the spectacular views, super fast downhills, challenging uphills and some meandering, flattish sections to get your breath back. And Jelly!

We need help from Senior Club members, and parents of Juniors, to help marshal for both races, but you can help your club now by liking and sharing the facebook page for the 10/15 mile, and spreading the word to anyone who might like to enter.
