    2019 Ambassadors
    I was so excited when I heard the event was taking place on our very own iconic Newcastle Quayside and had decided to take part in the Sprint Duathlon. To be chosen to be an ambassador was the icing on the cake.
    I started running because it was just an easy and cheap way to keep fit on top of other exercise I was doing like boxing and circuits classes. Try on the Tyne will be my first official 10K race.
    Hi, I am Sophie and I am a Physiotherapist.As a keen competitive amateur runner, I love to challenge myself regularly and see how far I can push myself!!!

    Events Of The North

    Have you heard about Families On Track, an event in association with Paula Radcliffe ?

    We are wanting to get more parents and children in to exercise and this event is just the way to do it!!

    Did you know...
    - only 22% of parents spend time exercising and being active
    - 49% of parents spend their leisure time watching TV with their children
    - one in six UK parents never exercise with their children

    Well the whole exercise and parenting thing... we totally get it!! It’s amazing but bloody exhausting being a parent, you don’t to have to tell us!

    But as difficult as it might feel to get up and out the door, even for a walk, you will feel so much better for it. Promise!

    Exercise encourages endorphins, those ‘happy hormones’ and can increase energy levels, mood and efficiency. The sense of personal achievement alone, accomplishing something you weren’t fully committed too can improve your general mental health and wellbeing. That’s for you and your children! #mentalhealthawareness

    Why not give yourself some motivation... Families On Track is an event the entire family can take part in together! No childminders necessary! Your family is your team and you decide who runs what distance. Check out our video below for more information and sign up to any of our 3 locations; Durham City Run Festival Worcester City Run NOW and next week entries open for Try on the Tyne
