Sunny Fun In Teeside
Sun shines as thousands cross the finish at Teesside’s much-loved Middlesbrough 10K...
Thousands of supporters came out to enjoy the sun and cheer on runners at the weekend's (3 September) Middlesbrough 10K. From running clubs, spectators, volunteers, schools and universities, the day highlighted the incredible communities in and around the town.
The route explored some of the town’s most well-known landmarks including Albert Park, the Dorman Museum, Teesside University, the Transporter Bridge and Riverside Stadium. Runners then headed back to Centre Square for the finish line.
Caroline Lambert was the first female across the finish line in a time of 37:22. Caroline was followed shortly behind by Jennifer Berry who clocked 37:38 for second place and Catherine Williamson who took third with 37:49. First male across the finish line was Lewis Gamble-Thompson in a time of 31:35. Joseph Wilson took second place in 32:18 with Dan Tate in third with 33:05.
Also starting and finishing in Centre Square, the 3K route took participants along Albert Road, Cleveland Street, Vulcan Street and back to Centre Square for the big finish.
