The first event of the season was the Keswick Half Marathon on Sunday May the 10th, unfortunately this event clashed with two others in the area and some of our members were elsewhere. Seven were doing the Castles Relay, whilst others were at the Blyth Valley Triathlon. The Castles Relay is held in north Northumberland, in the area around Norham, Berwick, Wooler and Holy Island; our team of 7 managed third place from the 10 teams taking part. Because of other events, etc. we only turned out 13 runners for the Keswick event although encouragingly the total race turnout was up from last year's figure of 430, to a healthy 470 finishers.

The Blaydon Race was the next event in the Grand Prix, on the 9th of June as ever, and there too the overall number of finishers was up from last year's 2057 to 2331 this time. Maybe things are looking up again after several years of dwindling numbers at many races. BRC turned out 58 runners, less than last year's 69 but still a good turnout. Not in the Grand Prix, but still popular with members, is the Newburn River Run; we had a fair number of runners in this event  on Wednesday June the 17th. Andy Brown was 5th overall and 4th senior, Ian Richardson was 12th, Dave McKenzie was 13th, and Anne Best was 1st o40 lady. Well done to them all.

The third race of the season, the Tynedale 10k was held at Ovingham on the 1st of July. Conditions were pretty good for running, neither too hot or cold. 48 runners from BRC took part, one more than last year, although the total number of finishers was down from 471 to 420. Andy Brown made a winning start to his Grand Prix season, finishing 7th overall in a time of 33 minutes dead. Anne Best was first L40 in 42.22,and Denis Moss was second V70 in 49.34, followed by Bob Soulsby (but not straight away!) who was third V70, in 65.31. BRC took 2nd, 4th and 9th male team places from 18, and the ladies team was 4th from 10. In the men's vets section the best BRC team was 7th from 42.

The Club Handicap was held on Sunday July 12th, along the familiar Links course to St. Mary's Island and past Feather's Caravans. Not so familiar was the weather - horizontal rain blown from the south by a cool wind, making everybody wonder what they were doing outside when they might have been reading the Sunday papers in the house. Still, the pull of the Grand Prix did wonders for the turnout with 33 starters as against only 20 last year. This is the 11th year that Ron Hope has done the handicaps, and once again the bulk of the runners finished inside a fairly tight time range. Thanks to Ron, and also to Mark Walbank for timekeeping and to Jim Jones and Barney Foster for marshalling. The event was won by Steve Walker, followed by Joe Potts in second place and Dave Kitching in third. Andy Brown was fastest male on the day, and Helen Freeman the fastest lady. For obvious reasons, the Grand Prix points are worked out on actual times.

The fifth event of the season was the Northumberland Coastal Run, a favourite of mine since first running it in 1988, and once again, around 1,000 people came along to enjoy the scenery (and the slippery rocks, waist high sea wading, soft sand, single file walking, etc.). The weather was close to ideal, hardly any wind and only the faintest of occasional drizzle, however most people's times were down by several minutes due to the tide being so far in. I can't remember it being so high before during the race, but it forced people right up the beach onto the very slippery boulders and rocks. I'll still be there next year though.

The second category B event, and 8th event overall, was the Derwentside 10m, on the 13th of September. On a fairly windy cool Sunday morning, this race was run in the area  around Stanley, County Durham, starting at the Police Station and finishing along the road at the Louisa Sports Centre. I am told this race has been voted equal first in a poll to find the toughest ten mile race in the country, and I'm not surprised. The hill between 2 and 4 miles is so steep I thought my legs were going to catch fire, and it was only one of many climbs (and steep descents!). Anyway, 24 BRC runners took part from a total field of 106. First back for Blyth was Dave McKenzie in 4th place, breaking Andy Brown's five race run of victories. Andy was a reluctant spectator, after running a marathon down in Hertfordshire the previous weekend. Once again our first lady back was Jacqui Lumsden, who was second lady overall. Everybody's times were several minutes down on their usual

The third category B event, and 9th event overall, was the Tynedale 10m, on the 20th of September.The weather was as hot as I can remember in September for this event, it felt much more like July. I saw lots of people suffering because of the heat (me included), and quite a few sorry sights at the finish. The race was run as usual from Hexham to Ovingham School, this year on Sunday afternoon and not Saturday as in previous years. I don't know why they switched days; if it was to get more entries, it certainly worked as 362 runners took part (against 243 in 1997 & 277 in 1996) of which 34 were from BRC. First back for Blyth was Andy Brown in 7th place, our first lady back was Anne Best, who was first L40 and 5th lady overall. Other BRC prizewinners were: Rob Hall - first V45 and 10th overall; Dave Kitching - first V55; Sheila Greener - first L45. Everybody's times were several minutes down on their usual due to the heat.

Brampton to Carlisle 10m on November 21st.

The last category B event, and 10th event overall, was the Brampton to Carlisle 10m, on the 21st of November. The weather was better than had been forecast, the promised rain never came (thankfully) but it was still quite windy. Entries were down, (maybe people should take less notice of the weatherman); 546 runners took part (710 in 1997) of which 30 were from BRC. First back for Blyth was Andy Brown in 13th place, our first lady back was Cath Coultate, who was sixth L40. Denis Moss took first O70 vet.  Despite the wind, at least two personal bests were set: Ken Turnbull and Jeff Brown both set new best times.
