Blue Runnings

Race Reviews, GPX files and more from North-East England

on 30 November 2019


I moved to the North-East of England in 2011, and started running (in a great deal of ignorance) in 2014 when I signed up to run the Great Women’s Run in Glasgow before actually seeing if I could run at all…I made about five paces before doing an excellent asthma attack impression.

Since then, I have run in many events around the North-East and you can find reviews of them including my impressions, photos, maps, elevation profiles, GPX files and anything else that occurred to me at the time by checking out my race list on the link below.

For 2020 I’m lacing up my trainers without emptying my wallet on the pavement and am only going to be attending events which are under Ā£10 to enter. I’ve generated a list of races I’ve found – whether I’m running them or not – so everyone can save some pennies while still feeling they’ve ticked the ‘racing’ box. Who knows where it will take us?! Reviews of races in this category I have run will be included here and in the general ‘Race Reviews’ too šŸ™‚


If you want to see what I’m doing on a weekly basis, and to see posts about races I’ve found or are coming up, and anything else I think might be of interest (not necessarily to anyone other than me!) then you can check out my facebook page where I’m moderately active šŸ˜‰


Anything else that might be of interest you can find in the menu buttons to the right – feel free to have a nosey šŸ™‚
