Earn That Friday Feeling

Take your 5K PB aspirations to the track this April...

If you like to really 'earn' your Friday night treats then surely bagging a 5K PB before you sink the share bag of Kettle chips is the way to do just that! And the best way to achieve that PB is on the track, in a race environment where you can push yourself to the max while channeling your inner Mo!

With that in mind, runners in the North East will be pleased to hear that in April 2022, Wild Deer Events will be venturing onto the track at the iconic Gateshead International Stadium and hosting graded 5000 metre track races for all levels up to 30 minutes.

If you are new to the track and feel a little daunted then that's not a problem, organisers suggest you head along to 5000 Metre Friday on 29 April to find out what it's all about - a spokesperson commented: "When you sign up you will be asked for a predicted finishing time for correct grading, on the night there will be pacemakers on bikes on the track for the first 1600 metres and all runners will be chip-timed."

This event is suitable for a range of speeds with races graded from sub 16 minutes to sub 30 minutes. What's more there will be snacks and a drink for all finishers!

If you've been practising your Mobot and would like to know more about this PB opportunity then visit the Wild Deer website.
