    • Did the event in 2018

      Actually described as '10k ish', my app measured it as 11.04km. It wasn't a walk in the park, it had all that you'd want from a testing trail run - water, mud, overgrowth, short climbs & the most fantastic North Sea coastal view, before you head back on the return trip to the finish line.
      A well organised race, the marshalling was effective & supportive, number collection was from the village hall & quite slick. Entry price was very fair but did lack the useful chip-timing, there was a selection of appetizing cakes, pies etc. available in the hall afterwards,
      I fully intend to take part again, if it is held next year.

      Both times I ran this race it was a boiling hot summer evening, personally I prefer when its boiling hot so it suited me! starts with a gradual incline on the first km, then turns left & youre Running downhill for about 3 or 4 Kms, then it changes into a brutally hard uphill until you hit about 9k mark then its a nice stroll into the finish at the Vindolanda Roman fort, enjoyable race & definitely a good one to get fit! All on road surface & decent Medal.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Anita Nott Memorial Run is a women-only 5K run through Jesmond Dene, Newcastle upon Tyne.

    Anita was a member of Heaton Harriers for a number of years. Anita raced in all disciplines from cross country to road and track and produced some outstanding results. As well as regularly racing for the club and being amongst one of our top performing ladies (winning the Davidson Shield on a number of occasions and the local 5k Sunshine run) she also immersed herself in the organization of club events and also supported many of our younger runners who were just starting out.

    This tremendous support and enthusiasm for the club and its members and a real love for running was evident in all that Anita did. Anita never made excuses as to why she couldnt do something she just got out and did it. She was very keen to promote veteran running and as such welcomed generous prize structures in local races that highlighted the strength in depth of the veteran field. For this reason, we have an extensive prize list for our womens only race to encourage everyone to take part and remember not only why we run but show everyone just how well we do it!

    Anita tragically lost her life in September 2006 whilst out on a training run. As a club we were heartbroken to lose such an amazing person and as such decided to dedicate our womens only run to her name. This race has been well supported over the years. Anita was very keen to see women getting involved in running and would have welcomed all abilities taking part in the event.

    We ask that you come and support our event and remember a great athlete! This could be the start of your athletic journey!

    • Did the event in 2017

      This is a local course for me but that's not why I do it. It's a lovely semi-trail route. Lovely scenery as you run along, the start can be a bit tight through a narrow stretch but once past that then you're away. There is a hilly but on 2k but you're fresh then and then you can just chug along taking in the views...until 8k...then you have a monster hill to climb. Every year I say I will complete in one go...and every year I get closer. But not managed the whole lot yet...next year then eh?Good fun and pretty race.
    • Did the event in 2016

      Ran this twice and it is the hilliest course Ive ran.Mix of trail and paths make this a great introduction to light trail running. Some sections can be boggy/wet so dont wear those new shiny trainers!At the start there are a couple of pinch points where Ive had to walk as you cant move but they clear up quickly. Challenging course with lots of ups and downs. The final hill is a real challenge.Something a bit diferent from usual road races and generally not too many people.Technical T-Shirt at the end.

      A positive first outing for this race.An honest course that has challenge in the bike and run sections. Transition was poor with no numbers or any guidance so bikes were hung incorrectly. Many first timers I suspect so it needed marshalling. Swim was pool based and done in waves. 5 seconds between each swimmer wasn't enough and after pushing off the wall I caught up with the guy in front. Bike route was multi lap on open roads. It did go onto the slip road of the Washington highway but I didn't feel unsafe at any point.Run was tough with multi lap course with a challenging hill! Marshalling on the course was fab. Helpful on the bike course and supportive on the run.nice high 5 bottle and gels with entry was appreciated!The event took me through the Tri process before my main events and that's what I wanted and got.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    We are pleased to be able to return to the venue of our first ever race in September 2010 at Wallington, near Morpeth. This race starts in the village of Cambo (1km from Wallington Hall) and finishing under the clocktower of Wallington Hall. The race is a certified 10k loop on undulating rural roads with some challenging hills and some steady downhill sections. This run is a great mid-week event and alterative to racing on weekends.

      If you're looking for a race that offers both a challenge and beautiful scenery, then this race will be right up your street. I entered this purely to add to my mileage and also because of how close it was to me. Parking, number collection and toilet facilities were very, very good. Where you collected your number would later be your finish line. From there, you have to make your way to the start, this is roughly over 1K. There are no complaints here, as it makes the perfect way to warm up. One downside was the delay of the race, but I'm being very picky here! The first mile is all down hill, so be ready to open up with a quick time. Mile 2-2.5 is nice and flat for you to get into a rhythm before you climb a long, long hill. It's not steep but the elevation really takes it out your legs! This continues right through the race, with undulating sections before you hit a drinks station - I failed miserably at trying to drink the water! This continues right through the race, with undulating sections before you hit a drinks station - I failed miserably at trying to drink the water! You then continue to climb right up until mile 5.5, as you meet the loop of the start line, if your legs are battered here, hold on, that majestic down hill is coming with. The marshals do a fantastic job of keeping you in check with the course, particularly at the end with that last 200m being an absolutely killer from all the hills.Great race - I'm certain to be back!
