Junior Beach Races 2012

[Sat 7th Jul 2012]

 

There were nearly 100 children in attendance for the beach races organised by Blyth Running Club with the support of England Athletics and Northern Power Grid.

 

IMG_0469The torrential downpour of the previous days had ceased and we were met by bright sun-shine as we patiently waited for the tide to recede so that we could mark the course out. However, we were suddenly enveloped by a thick fog andby the time the course was laid we couldnít see the first turning point which was only 100 metres away.

All the races were on the beach and there was a large crowd of spectators and children as the first race was set off by the Northern Power Grid Mascot, Vic Voltage. This was a 200 meters race for the Under 6ís and Vic managed to run the first ten yards before being overtaken by the runners. The first girl back was Zoe Robson with Aidan Gray winning the boys race.

 

IMG_0490The under 9ís ran a distance of 400 metres and Rhiannon Hedley was the first girl, while Robbie Cleghorne won the boys race.In the under 11 categories the youngsters had to run 800 metres and Jessica Locker of Blyth Running Club was the first girl, while Josh Fiddaman made it a double for Blyth by winning the boys race. The under 13ísran a distance of 1200 metres, with Lauren Robson, not to be outdone by younger sister Zoe, winning the girls race, while Kieron Hedley also followed his sister into the winners enclosure by taking the boys prize.

 

The Under 15ís ran a distance of 1.0 miles and for the second year running Charley Hedley won the girls race with Joseph Woods making it another double for Blyth running club by winning the boys race. Everybody who ran the race was given a medal and the race winners were presented with trophies by Vic Voltage Ė who by this time was starting to feel the heat!
