On your marks…
We plan to return this year to the Newcastle Town Moor in conjunction with Northern Pride. THIS IS OF COURSE DEPENDENT ON CORONAVIRUS, so although planned for July 17th this could well change. We will not open for entries until the situation is clear.
Not one, two but three races: our infamous LGBT5k £17/£15 (price held from 2019), plus the relay and children’s race (price tbc).
All participants get a medal and the best goody bag in the north east!
Supporting Rainbow Home
Once again Newcastle Frontrunners support Rainbow Home with a £1 donation made for every entry to the LGBT5k. Rainbow Home are a group working lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans asylum seekers in Newcastle and the north east. They provide a support in a safe space, with integration, friendship, confidence, to help enable them to feel at home. Find out more about their work via Mesmac.
The date is provisionally the evening of Friday 17th July 2020 – BUT THIS IS CORONAVIRUS DEPENDENT. We will update the Page as things become clearer, and will not open for entires until we are sure we have a date we can safely use. The event is planned to again coincide with Newcastle Pride weekend, will take place on Newcastle’s Town Moor, and all events occur on the same evening.
Introduced in 2018 the children’s 2k and the 3-person relay where each person runs approx. 1 mile, were a great success. If you can’t manage a full 5k, are returning from injury, you have a couple of friends you’d love to run with as a team, or fancy a bit of friendly competition with other clubs, the relay is the ideal event for you. You can run the relay as well as the 5k race.
Approximate timings are:
5.45pm: Children’s 2k (age 5-15)
6.30pm: 3×1-mile relay
7.15pm: The traditional LGBT5k
