  • 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.

  • 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.

Anita Nott Women Only Run
Newcastle upon Tyne, North East, United Kingdom

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

    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.

    Nice run out and back along the Tyne. Flat and fast and a less common race distance. Great goody bag. Would run it again .

    First time doing this race and really enjoyed it, despite the incessant rain! Fantastic marshalling support throughout and very well organised. Canny out and back route. Lovely race tee and most decent goody bag too.Definitely a race I'll do again.

    I missed the inaugural race last year, gutted as it looked to be a cracking event.Fast forward 12 months and I've finally run this beautiful course. From start to finish, each mile brings with it, its own challenge, whether it's a climb or attention to focus, it's perfect for stretching your legs in your training - especially for the Great North Run.The organisation is fantastic, the support and the volunteers are outstanding, with a welcomed drinks station at the 3.5 and 6.5-mile check points.  Another brilliant event that's set up by Luke - I'll be back next year for sure!
