    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!!!
