Druridge Bay Marathon and Half Marathon
Druridge Bay was the idyllic setting for this increasingly popular Marathon and Half Marathon, organised by the North East Marathon Club.
The race was multi terrain, 2 laps for the half and 4 laps for the full marathon which made it very spectator friendly. Each lap consisted of a loop around the lake by the visitor centre, a one mile stretch along the beach and undulating paths and tracks.
The half marathon was won by Jesmond Joggers' Michael Hedley in 1.23.12.
