This year’s Junior Great North Run was its usual colourful, inspiring and entertaining affair. Tynedale Harriers were, as usual, well represented.
It was a day of two halves, very wet in the morning and brighter periods in the afternoon.
The girls were first off in the morning with Ellie Bluck, Keely French, Roisin Lally, Jasmine Couchman, Hayley Hannant and Kate Riddick all running in their Tynedale vests.
In the afternoon the Tynedale boys headed out with Max Pearson, Dan Joyce, Dan Emerson, Patrick Lally, Alexander Weightman, Gabriel Morley, Harry Coldwell, Jacob Hunter, Harry Courtney and Ciaran Lally all running for the club.
Dan Joyce had a particularly good run to take 3rd place in the 11/12 Years age group. Dan ran the 4k course in 14 mins 20 secs.
Max Pearson won his age group for the fourth consecutive year and won the overall Boys race for the first time. He ran the course in 12 mins and 40 secs.
Well done to all. Its great spotting the Tynedale vests on the big screen.
