Report submitted by Ian Young

The Race Great North 5K
Overall Score 23
PB Potential 5 – Really flat course but you need to be in the first wave to be sure of a potential PB.
Atmosphere 5 – Part of the Great Run festival on the Quayside.
Organisation 5 – Really good, can`t fault it.
Scenery 5 – Newcastle Quayside say not more!
Value for Money 5 – £20 entry includes cotton t-shirt, medal, goody bag, water.
Beginner Friendliness 5 – Waves setting off at different times catering for every ability.
Club Support & Social 5 – Lots of Bounders down on the Quayside their kids taking part in the Junior & Mini Great North Run with the brilliant City Games in the afternoon.
 In Short  If you don’t fancy paying £50 for GNR or you did not get in you can still enter this event the week leading up to the GNR weekend. Lots to see and do on the Quayside great day out for families. Recommended.
