MARK HOOD, who missed out on last week’s Blaydon race through a sore Achilles tendon, showed he is getting back to form with his performance in the Riverside parkrun at Chester-le-Street on Saturday.

The Sunderland Harrier, preparing to win back the Sunderland 5k road race title at Silksworth on Wednesday, July 17, recorded the fastest time of all parkruns in the North East, clocking a personal best of 15.07 for the Riverside course.

Hood has won the Sunderland 5k three times with his fastest set in 2008 (14.45).
