    Thank you to the weather gods for helping with the launch of Try on the Tyne this morning, on the Newcastle and Gateshead quaysides. It should be a great addition to the summer sports events calendar in the region, with a series of duathlons and running races for adults and juniors.

    We had a couple of the region's talented multi-eventers on hand to encourage folk to sign up - 17-year-old Dan Dixon from Morpeth, who was British Elite Youth Triathlon Champion in 2017, and has qualified to represent Great Britain in international events, and Lynn Munro, 66 and from Blyth, has just qualified for the age group race at the 2020 Duathlon World Championships.

    Dan and Lynn joined Steve Cram, Sam Morgan-Nicholson from British Triathlon, Cllr Kim McGuinness of Newcastle City Council, and Cllr Angela Douglas of Gateshead Council, to see the event venue and issue a call to action for people of all ages and abilities to sign up and TRY on the Tyne.

    Here's hoping that the sun will be shining again on 10th August!
