Member Profile – Davey Candlish

I ran my first half marathon when I was 12 years old.   It was in the early days of the Great North Run and they didn’t have health and safety back then, never mind a junior run.   My Dad (who ran with the now defunct Gateshead Congas back in the day) just dropped […]

He […]

Eden Half Marathon Race Report

When Frank said he was going to do a half marathon in his old neck of the woods where he grew up and asked if anyone wanted to join him, I was sorely tempted. Jacqui said she didn’t want to miss out, so then we had a full car with Phil Young and Naz taking […]
