The latest Grand Prix standings after the Sunderland City Half Marathon have been released. Many thanks to John ROSS as always for his great work. The top 3 remain the same with Dominic HARRIS leading David HINDMARSH and Karen KELLY. After her decent performance in the London Marathon Ruth DOCTOR is up to 4th, demoting Conrad STEWART a place. After her half marathon pb in Sunderland Emma SHELL is now in 6th, with the other big mover being Laura McLEAN Jr in 8th.
There’s still plenty of time to go with some upcoming Grand Prix races below:
Wednesday 24th May-George Ogle Memorial Race. This is a cracker of a race with a bit of everything; road, trail, grass, a hilly bit and a disused railway. More details and entries are here https://derwentvalleyrunningclub.co.uk/georgeogle/
Sunday 28th May-Druridge Bay 10k. Sold out!!!
Friday 9th June-Blaydon Race. Sold out!!! Details of the ridiculously massively subsidised club coach are in a separate post.
Sunday 13th August-Darlington 10k. This is a fast and very flat race which is a replacement for the Clive Cookson 10k which clashes with the George Ogle Memorial Race in May. Entries go live on Friday 24th February with the first 300 places having a huge 30% discount! You will be able to enter here https://bookitzone.com/DarlingtonRaces/1y2FFX
Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th October-Helvellyn and Ullswater Trail Races. The club trip entries are now closed. More details will follow for all those who’ve signed up.
Sunday 28th October-Jedburgh 10k and Half Marathon. There will be a very cheap coach laid on for these races. More details will be announced asap.
