New running group starts

A NEW running group aimed at beginners or those that have not put on their trainers for some time has started up.

Whitley Bay-based Northern Soles Running Group caters for everyone.

It was started in January with three sessions a week, but a new Saturday morning session is starting up on May 7, meeting at Churchill playing fields running track.

Members are entering the Race for Life, North Tyneside’s 10k and the other local runs such as the North Shields Poly Clive Cookson 5k fun run.

The group has links with England Athletics (Run in England), North Shields Poly and NOTAN, so those wishing to take their running further have the avenues to do so.
