Whilst on the subject of junior track and field - A massive well done to Thomas Rumney who won the U13 100m at the The Ann Marie Readshaw Open Track and Field Meeting on Sunday 12/4/15.
The Terry O'Gara Memorial 5k takes place on Sunday 26th April entry details here. A fun run also takes place prior to the 5k. This event is free for all Wallsend Juniors who have paid subs for 2015. It would be great to see a large contingent of Wallsend Juniors representing the club at this great event.
The Junior Park Run is a timed 2k run and takes place each Sunday on the promenade, Whitley Bay seafront. The club is always well represented by our juniors each week, but it would be great to see even more juniors running along the sea front representing the Green and Gold.
Last week Alfie Ward won the event for the first time. Ellen Williams finished 2nd lady and 7th overall in her first junior parkrun.

The annual Toby is now part of Wallsend Harriers legend. Will you be part of this year’s story?
As club members we are all fortunate to be able to run and the Toby gives us the opportunity to do something extraordinary for a great cause. Since 2008 the annual Toby has raised money for St Oswald’s Hospice, which has cared for the loved ones of some of our club members. This year we are likely to break the £25,000 barrier in total money raised for St Oswald’s over the years!
This coming Friday (April 3rd/Good Friday) all sessions including junior sessions are cancelled.
Juniors return 17th April.
Annual subs are now due. As agreed at the last AGM subs have increased to £45. Please ensure you pay this by 31 May 2015. Any questions, please contact Elaine Liu (Treasurer) or Mick Day (Membership Secretary).
Junior subs are also due junior fees have been held at £20.
We are going to trial paying subs only directly into the club's bank account. Currently you can pay subs via Paypal but this incurs an additional fee which goes directly to Paypal. Details of the club's bank account and instructions can now be found in the members' only section of the website. If you have any questions, please contact me. (Elaine Liu)
The T&F 2015 season is almost upon us, and we will be holding an informal taster session for anyone to come and try out an event they may be interesting in competing in.
Events on offer will include:
Hurdles, Javelin, Shot Putt, Long Jump, Discuss.
If time we may have a look at some baton hand-overs too.
We will be joined by our T&F Team mates Blyth, so it will be a great time for us all to get to know one another.
If you're not keen, but are curious - come on down anyway, we'll need a few extra pairs of eyes to make sure all goes smoothly.
