This is the first time I have ran this race and at two and a half relatively flat laps I think if you are on form and up for it, this is definitely a pb course.
However, I was definitely not on form or up for it as I struggled badly, to clock 38.59 (6.16 miling!) to finish 27th overall. To compound my frustrations even further, I was caught and passed by Keith Galbraith of Hartlepool Burn Road with about 8oom to go as he took the first M50 place from my grasp, finishing 6 seconds and one place ahead of me.
The race was won by James Bulman of North York moors in 32.30 and first lady was Aiveen Fox of Morpeth (38.05). Other Blaydon results:
Luke Aston 18th - 37.43
Eric Lewis 35th - 39.43
Mick Henderson 104th - 46.09
Irene Henderson 207th (2nd F60) - 56.53
