Race Report: Newcastle 10K 29th March 2015
This year’s Newcastle 10k was a sell-out and, despite the weather, 423 runners completed the hilly course. First home was Felix McGrath of Westbury Harriers in an impressive time of 33:27, 31 seconds ahead of second-placed Carl Moulton. First lady was the irrepressible Michelle Buckle of Newcastle (Staffs) AC in 40:00, winning the ladies title on home turf.

Rich Fain 41:25, Paul Phillips 44:50, John Paul Jones 47:17, Richard Shaw 49:14, Gail Evans 50:57, Anne-Marie Mountford 53:23, Joyce Edwards 1:01:58, Sam Cowap 1:04:05.
