Weetslade Relay 2013
Hosted by Wideopen Football Club

The Weetslade Relay is organised by Claremont Road Runners. This event was started four years ago with 8 teams and 24 runners entering. On 26th June 2013 they had a record number of entries with 64 teams, 192 runners and 12 officials. The start and finish is at Wideopen Football Club. The organisers describe the event and course as follows: "3 x 2.5 miles (approx.) traffic free, multi terrain course. Each team of three must include a veteran and a lady (these may be the same person). The scenic, multi-terrain course has received favourable comments from runners in the previous years . Each team member runs one leg which covers a distance of about 4.08k. It includes a hill at halfway with a thirty metre climb. There are spectacular views over Tyneside for those who still notice such things after running up a hill. There are prizes for the members of the first and second teams and for the fastest male and female runners and veterans." For more information go to
Wideopen Football Club is proud to part of this well organised, enjoyable event. Their secretary, Dave Swan, was invited to present the winners with their prizes.
