Another new race - hopefully!


There are proposals for another half marathon on Tyneside.  With the start and finish on the Newcastle and Gateshead Quaysides.  The race would head out east towards the coast as far as the Tyne Pedestrian Tunnel which it will pass through before returning back up the opposite river bank.

Currently the organisers are trying to establish how much support there would be for such a race.  So if you are interested please let the organisers know by visiting www.tynehalfmarathon.co.uk to let them know.

The Tyne pedestrian Tunnel is presently undergoing a major multi-million pound refurbishment.  The pictures to the left show the tunnel prior to work starting.




Hopefully I will be fit by the time the race is actually arranged.  Having had a couple of easy run outs on the treadmill and a couple of easy jogs with very little negative reaction from my achilles I am intending to start to slowly pick things up this week.


The photos, by the way, were taken as they often are on this blog by Francesca.
