The Newburn river run is a Wednesday evening race held in mid-June each year.  Elswick Harriers organise the pleasant, 6-mile, largely off-road, run along trails either side of the Tyne.  The run begins near the Newburn leisure centre, follows along the North of the Tyne, over the bridge at Wylam and back along the South of the river, finishing near the Newburn bridge.

It was a pleasant, warm and humid evening. Nine from Claremont were running and the two Matthews led Claremont home. Charlotte was representing the home team.  The course was slightly altered, and improved this year, beginning off road on the path/grass area in the Tyne riverside park, near the river.  This new and wide start area permitted a fast start, unaffected by traffic. Following the race we picked up complementary sandwiches at the bar in the leisure centre and waited for the prize giving.  The run is sheltered and fast.  Look for it next year, just after the Blaydon race.

A fair bit of parkrun tourism this week, with Alice Vialard in her native France and Dan Edwards in his native Midlands, but the prize goes to Luke Woodend for Michigan, USA. Luke also finished in a more than respectable 8th place!

Congratulations also to Rose Hawkswood on completing her 100th parkrun.
