As part of Newcastle Pride, the Northern Front Runners will be holding their fifth annual 5k run on Friday 15th July, starting on the Town Moor.
There are some keen runners here at Your Homes Newcastle, including members of our LGBT and Allies staff network groups, many of whom will be participating to celebrate Newcastle Pride. We’d like to extend an invitation to all of our tenants – if you’d like to take part in the run or even just cheer on those who have signed up then we’d love to see you!
The race is a fast, flat 5km, is open to all aged 16 and over and will be run under UK Athletics rules. There will be professional chip timing, a medal and goodie bag for all finishers. It’s a great atmosphere where everyone is welcome, from 16 minute speedsters to walkers in fancy dress!
There are prizes for the first three male and three female finishers, plus entertainment after the race. The provisional start time for the race will be 6:45pm, but final details will be sent to race entrants prior to the run.
Front Runners is a running club catering to the North East of England, based here in Newcastle. It is part of the International Frontrunners network, a family of running clubs that are inclusive and welcome all sections of the community, with an emphasis on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities.
Two thirds of the tickets have been sold already. If you are interested in running, walking or even coming along to cheer people on and celebrate Newcastle Pride, you can find out more here.
We hope to see you there!
