Druridge Bay 10k

[Sun 30th May 2010] 

Blyth were well represented at the Druridge Bay 10k held on Sunday 30th May.  Paul Whalley was 2nd in a time of 37:03 (there was controversy on the day with one of the leaders going the wrong way, but Paul is shown as 2nd in the results) and Gareth Hope finished 9th with 39:34.  Scott Povey in his first ever 10km did 40 mins exactly for 11th place overall and first U16.  Well done Scott.  Ian Baxter, Phillipa Baxter, Keith Willshire, Sharon Richardson, Joanne Straughan and Heather Barrass all also had very good races in tough windy/wet conditions.

The race is one of the most scenic around.  Including the Druridge Bay Lake, Country Park and Sea/Beach as a part of its route of a multi terrain course.

Well done to all of the 450 finishers.  Full results can be found on the here.
