On Saturday 5th May Peter GREY took part in his first race since injuring himself in the Morpeth 11k on New Years Day 2011, by taking part in the Newcastle Parkrun. Peter has evidently lost none of his speed finishing 10th of the 304 runners in 18.36, and first in the male 50 category. Welcome back Peter! That same morning David NOLAN finished 6th of the 72 finishers in the Gateshead Parkrun, completing the tough 5k in 20.26.
