Prudhoe Plodders are proud as punch to be invited to manage the 2020 Essity Prudhoe Miners Race

The Essity Prudhoe Miners Race 2019 was a huge success; entries were higher, times were faster and even the rain was heavier.  Prudhoe Plodders did the town and the Council proud, they managed with race with aplomb and the positive feedback received from runners and spectators was inspiring.

Essity was pleased that the race had more of a community feel to it and will continue to be involved in the future; they are a great contributor and participants recognise that they are the main sponsor.

At it’s meeting on 13th November, the Council was unanimous in their agreement to invite Prudhoe Plodders to organise the 2020 Essity Prudhoe Miners Race.

Prudhoe Plodders volunteers worked exceptionally hard to make the event a success and it has certainly been re-branded as a race that everyone could try.

The race was more popular, more positive and a pleasure to be involved in, however, there is no complacency and Prudhoe Plodders have big plans for 2020.
