A typical frosty but sunny winter's morning for the 3rd race in the series. Grabbing the headlines was Terry Forrest who became our first race winner for quite a number of years. Those who know Terry will appreciate that the feat is all the better as he prefers to start at the back and overtake everyone!

Again there were good individual as well as team performances

  • Nostell Priory [16]

  • Wakefield Thornes [2]

  • Darlington [1]

  • Druridge Bay [1]


This year the race is being run on both a Saturday & Sunday and is a Grand Prix event. The Club will be putting on a coach and we have reserved 40-45 places which we can use on the Saturday or Sunday. We do need to make a decision on which day we will attend - both have their merits. Could you please express your preference by email, let Stewart know at training or post on facebook. By entering throug the club and coming on the  (which will be paid for by the club) you will save money on the entry fee as this year the cost of coach transport is included (we have a dispensation).

Voting closes by the end of the month. If voting number is low, the committee will decide!

This is a superb event and the majority who have attended over the last 3 years have achieved a pb.

Jogle 2015: 22 Aug

What an excellent day of racing this was with almost 3,000 athletes taking part in races from under 13's to Seniors. With so many runners, the course was bound to get muddy - and it did! There could well be some good trainers out there waiting to be retrieved. We managed to get more than enough members out to count for a Ladies and Men's Team. Our 5 ladies - Denise Clark, Liane Warren, Angie Dales, Jenny Dews and Amanda Wilson did superbly well over the energy sapping 8k course and were up against some excellent teams and individual athletes. They will have gained much from the experience and managed to finish 39/41 clubs who managed to field a full team. We're proud of them.

The level of competition can be gauged by the fact that Alistair Brownlee could only finish second in the mens event and our own Simon Newton was 181st! The boys did good though and a finish of 48/58 clubs was a decent performance. Well done to Simon, charlie Lines, Richard Ritucci, Neil Holt, Craig Daniels, Richard Smart, John Moran and Tim Owen.

Harpng back to lost trainers, Amanda Wilson and Tim Owen both lost theirs in the same section, but gamely put them back on and carried on. Well done to both - they demonstrated true club spirit. Tim will dine out on the fact that he lined up with a Brownlee and was actually ahead of him on the course at times - although he may not have been on the same lap.

It was a long day for our volunteer marshals - but again they all appeared to enjoy the day and had great spectating positions.


National Picture

Excellent stats from the 'runbritain' website showing a substantial increase in races and racers in 2014. They recorded a staggering increase of almost 1 million performances over 2013 to 3,706,924. Playing a significant part was parkruns which accounted for 64.9% of the total - 2,367,194 (1,530,497 in 2013) - a 54.7% increase. Non parkrun performances were also up but by a lower amount - 11%. It will be interesting to see how growth of parkrunners impacts on the number of other race performances.

Club Picture

Well we did more also. Race entries were up  to 26.4% to 3,297, mileage covered up 19.7% to 17,690 - that's a lot of trainers needed! parkruns were up 38.4% to 1,827. 44 members did at least one mararhon - up from 29 in 2014. Surprisingly there was a slight fall in the number of 10ks completed although the number of members running at least one did increase. More details here
