An Olympia's view
The Druridge Bay 10km is set in the picturesque country side of North Northumberland, a beautiful route that incorporates the lake and the beach. I ran the inaugural race in 2007 in aid of Asthma Uk. It is an enjoyable race for all abilities, a great day out for all the family. An event I would recommend.
Best wishes and good luck to everyone taking part.” Laura Weightman
