The popular Sunderland City runs of a Half Marathon and 10km attracted the JJs to run as well as marshal this year with David Newman, Matty Down and Rhys Minchin doing the volunteering duties. In the 10km race Jake Archer is clearly getting himself back in to form with a great 37:14 clocking. Kate Winstanley is showing that the silver reps on Wednesdays is clearly helping as he reduced her PB by 1min 43 sec from the Blyth 10km in April, where she had reduced that by 1min 12. Greame Leathard showed a good clean pair of heels to finish with a great time and Eleanor Nickilin was just behind him, also going sub 55mins.

In the Half marathon, Simon Baker run a great time of 1:50;42 with Martyn Collins running his second half marathon in a week with a faster time of 1:59:01 beating his time at Gateshead Half seven days before. A special mention to our second claim member Andrew Heide who finished 12th in 1:19:54, showing that his injury problems are hopefully behind him.

Well done JJs.
