Ali Brownlee 5K – 30th June 2023

By Rob Teasdale

Last Friday saw the second running of the Ali Brownlee 5k since its return from Covid times. Pre-covid this was one of the ‘to do’ 5ks in the region with its flat and predominately fast course.

Friday saw 5 of us from the club line up, plus second claim member John Firby. The course is a little twisty and turny but not bad overall and to finish you get to do nearly three quarters around the inside of the Riverside Stadium. No doubt the most people seen inside there for some time!

Lee was first back for the club with a great time on his return from his injury with Stan not too far behind continuing his consistent form. I was happy with my time which was a bit of a boost given recent fitness. Simon was chuffed to run a sub 20 time while Gayle ran a storming time also which was the start of a busy weekend for her. Firby also ran a great new PB and well done to him.

Great work by everyone involved tonight, highly recommend this one to people for next year.
