2018, Summer Grand Prix – final planning

Final details of our 2018, Summer Grand Prix season were being put together at a meeting last night.

There will be no Wordsworth family to help this year (due to James’ continued success in his throws events, and Graeme’s adventure into trial running!) so big shout out for volunteers, especially back room staff  i.e. results and coffee bar.

We have agreed that there will  be 6 dates for this year’s season, all on a Sunday. Dates for your diary’s are:

8th April 2018,

6th May 2018

10th June 2018

1st July 2018

5th August 2018, and

2nd September 2018

This year’s event has a new format i.e. the participants top five event scores going toward the overall rankings. A free t-shirt will be given to all entrants. Only 150 participants will be allowed to compete on any one day. Block booking all six events will qualify for discounted rate. (A higher rate of entry fee will apply on the day.) Children will be offered the opportunity to purchase Step badges at the end of each day’s event.


Entry forms are currently being devised and should be available no later than 24th February 2018. These will be available on our website, at Whitley Bay Junior Park Run events, Blyth Indoor Sportshall events, and through social media.
