The club have now entered 1 open team (mixed) into the Hodgson brothers relay on October 7th and as already mailed out the event is open to all members who have experience of mountain running and navigation.
To that end I am going across on Saturday September the 1st to recce parts of the route.
For those wanting to come across for the recce or just to have a run in the hills please get in touch.
The plan is to run 2 or 3 of the legs depending on who is going across. The routes will mean running around 15 miles and around 5000 thousand feet of climbing so a full day out in the hills.
Saltwell Harriers meet two days a week for up to three sessions. All sessions are led by running leaders. All sessions begin and end at the Gateshead Leisure Centre on Alexandra Road. Members have FREE USE of the brand new onsite showers and changing facilities
