Before the weekend, three Alnwick athletes travelled to Northern Ireland last Thursday to compete in the Brooks Armagh International Road Races. Each year, the city closes its central roads and invites athletes from around the world to compete in their 5km, 3km and junior races.

For more than 50 years the event has attracted athletes of the highest standard and can claim to be the fastest road race in the world by securing the greatest number of athletes able to finish the 5km course in under 15 minutes! There is also an international race for the ladies, veterans and junior men which is contested over 3km.

Alnwick’s Ollie Telfer had a tremendous 3km race, winning the junior boys’ category (U17) in an excellent time of 9.28. Ollie finished 22nd overall in the whole race among some excellent competition. Mike Telfer was quite a bit further back completing the race in a reasonable 10.44. Finlay Telfer raced the shorter 1400m course, but did well finishing in 5.44.

The best North East England result was from Morpeth Harrier Carl Avery – who is a good friend of Alnwick Harriers – who ran a superb race to finish 24th in 14.17.

North East Indoor Athletic Championship 2019

Alnwick Harriers were well represented in the shot-put competition at the North East Indoor Athletics Championship.

The junior throwers won three medals. Both Talia (U15) and Leila Thompson (U13) won silver medals and Finlay Telfer (U15) managed bronze. Finlay and Leila recorded personal best throws of 7.34m and 6.89m and Talia managed another massive throw of 10.37m.

Race round-up

Strong winds made the going tough for Alnwick Harriers who represented the club at the weekend.

Despite the tricky conditions, there were some great performances, including from rising star Millie Breeze, who won the U15s girls’ race at the penultimate North Eastern Harrier League fixture at Thornley Hall Farm, Peterlee, on Saturday.

Millie won the fixture from the fast pack, crossing the line in 14.40 – nine seconds ahead of Gateshead Harrier Ines Curran.

Millie’s performance sees her second in the Girls’ U15 Individual Grand Prix, with just one meeting to go – Alnwick in March.

Millie was one of four Junior Harriers who made the trip to Peterlee, with James Carragher and Joseph Godden (U15 boys) and Evie Godden (U13 girls) all running well in the difficult conditions.

In the men’s race, the team finished 10th on the day in Division Two, leaving them 8th in the league.

First back for Alnwick, running strongly from the medium pack, was Bruce Crombie, finishing 104th in 42.46. Next were two fast-pack runners in the form of Graham Simpson (43.16) and Steve Carragher (43.59). Medium-packer Adam Fletcher was fourth back for Alnwick in 44.10, followed by fellow medium-packer Jon Archer in 45.51. Sixth for Alnwick was Ian Stephenson, who crossed the line in 56.46 from the slow pack.

In the women’s contest, Alnwick finished 10th in Division One, leaving them at the foot of the table.

There was a strong turn-out from the north Northumberland lasses. Leading the way was Mel Steer, from the slow pack, who finished in 35 minutes exactly. She was followed by three medium-pack colleagues – Lisa Baston (35.47), Karen Kelly (35.48) and Jo Powell (37.32).

Alnwick’s other runners, all from the slow pack, were Emma McGee (38.53), Jennifer Knight (42.36), Linda Patterson (46.08), Lorna Stephenson (47.09) and Jan Chisholm (49.42).

 

Away from the thrills and spills of the cross-country, a number of Alnwick Harriers were in parkrun action.

At Druridge Bay, Robert Baddeley was first home for Alnwick, finishing 9th overall in 21.55.

The club’s Carole Page was the winner of the women’s race, crossing the line in 21.59.

At Alnwick, there were some good results at the Pastures parkrun.

Mike Telfer was first back for Alnwick, finishing fifth overall in 22.48, while Ian Horsley was one place behind in 23.24.

Emma Givens put in a decent performance to finish second in the women’s race, crossing the line in 27.13.

Elsewhere, Melanie Brigid Buchanan ran at the Kirkcaldy parkrun for the first time, finishing in 30.18, while Richard and Gay Eastoe were once again at Workington, clocking 29.55 and 41.55 respectively.

Before the weekend, there were some outstanding performances by the club’s younger members.

On Thursday evening, at the Gateshead Indoor Athletics Meeting, Talia Thompson threw another Alnwick Harrier club record-breaking distance of 10.44m in the shot put.

The Amateur Athletics Association grade the top performances in all track and field events and award both senior and junior athletes with the best performances.

Talia’s exceptional throw has earned her grade 1 recognition – a standard that has not been achieved within the club at senior or junior level since 2011.

Furthermore, she is only the third athlete in the club to ever perform at such a high standard.

Talia has trained hard throughout the winter, travelling to Gateshead twice a week for additional coaching.

The summer season is still almost three months away, so achieving such a fantastic throw is very positive and she promises to have a very successful season.

Meanwhile, Leila Thompson also broke her own club record on Thursday and won the U13 girls’ competition. A fantastic set of result for the sisters!

Weekend race round-up

The winter weather was the real winner at the weekend, with the snow severely impacting the race calendar, including the cancellation of the Druridge Bay and Alnwick Pastures parkruns.

But there were some Alnwick Harriers who were able to compete – and they did rather well!

Peter Grey won a silver medal in the M60 category at the North East Masters Cross-Country at Wallsend. He completed the snow-covered course in 37.06.

Meanwhile, Jason Dawson was sixth in the M45 section, finishing in 34.29.

Alnwick has a thriving Junior section and this was shown once again, with eight young Harriers representing the Duchess’s Community High School and Northumberland at the Inter-Counties Cross-Country Championship at Temple Park, South Shields, on Saturday.

It was a snowy day but the runners weren’t put off taking on teams from Durham, Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Lilia Purvis (Y7) was first to race and managed an excellent 18th place and was fourth counter for the Northumberland team. It was a confident race by Lilia and her result should be good enough to gain her a place on the county team for the Minors National Championship.

Millie Breese once again had a superb race and having confidently won the County Championship went on to win this inter-county fixture against some excellent competition. It was a superb result and Millie will now progress to the English Schools’ Championship, which is held in Leeds in March.

Lauren Brown and Hannah Johnston also ran well, finishing as fourth and sixth counters for the team.

Max Murray-John was the only Alnwick Junior boy in his category but finished his 4km race in 55th place.

The intermediate boys were lead home by Ollie Telfer in overall 37th and seventh counter, followed by Ben Murray-John in 42nd as eighth Northumberland boy home. Barnabus Harvey also represented the county, finishing 63rd .

The runners represented their school, club and county admirably and most of them will hopefully go on to represent Northumberland at national level.

Away from the thrills and spills of cross-country, Diana Weightman represented the club at the Clapham Common parkrun, finishing in 24.53.

Weekend round-up

Runners wearing the Alnwick Harriers vest put in some excellent performances at the weekend.

Fantastic performances by all the juniors at a well organised and great venue.

Junior round-up

Smashing the club record and competition victories – there have been some impressive performances from talented members of the Alnwick Harriers Junior section.

First up, Ollie Telfer shone at the Northern Athletics Indoor Championship, at Sheffield.

The race was Ollie’s first opportunity to run on an indoor 200m track but once around the first bend he quickly adjusted to the different environment. Ollie ran a personal best time in the 800m, finishing in 2min 11s, setting a new club record in the process.

Meanwhile, at the Gateshead Indoor Athletics series, it was Leila Thompson’s turn on to win first prize (U13) in the shot put. Leila improved her indoor club record to 6.4m, while sister Talia could only manage 4th place on this evening.

 

Last week, 25 Junior Alnwick Harriers represented their schools at the Schools’ Cross-country County Championship.

It was a successful day with Millie Breese running superbly to win her race.

Lauren Brown and Hannah Johnston finished 4th and 5th.

Lilia Purvis had a great race in the U13 category and was the club’s only other girl to be selected to represent the County next month.

In the boys’ races, Max Murray-John gained a county vest in the U13 age group.

The intermediate boys Ben Murray-John, Ollie Telfer and Barney Harvey all gained top-16 places to represent Northumberland too at the Northern Region Intercounty Competition, at Temple Park, South Shields.

Weekend race report

It was a busy weekend of race action for Alnwick Harriers – including huge numbers from the club turning out for the town’s first parkrun.

The debut Pastures parkrun was under starter’s orders on Saturday morning and attracted a field of more than 200 runners.

Held in the shadow of Alnwick Castle and with three laps around the Pastures, the stunning Alnwick event is a welcome addition to the parkrun collection.

Fittingly, the race itself and the women’s event were both won by Alnwick Harriers, with Dan Turnbull first home in 17.46, while youngster Millie Breese (JW11-14) was first female in a very impressive 20.53.

Meanwhile, hardy Harriers Ross Wilson, Alice Tetley-Paul and Dave Bartrum took on the challenging, but scenic Hedgehope half-marathon – which actually turned out to be more like 16 miles.

The trio had to contend with high winds, as well as the large climbs, but Ross put in a storming performance to finish 13th overall in 2.50.20. Alice completed in 3.51.37, while Dave went round in 4.00.18. A great effort! A number of other Alnwick Harriers acted as sweepers at the event.

Elsewhere, a major shout out to Junior Ollie Telfer, who ran a 2.11.19 PB in the 800m at the Northern Athletics Indoor Championships.

Weekend race round-up

Cross-country and parkrun dominated the weekend’s race calendar, with the Juniors putting in particularly impressive performances.

The first cross-country fixture of the New Year was the Sherman Cup and Davidson Shield, at Temple Park. The fixture is a one-off match where the runners race without the usual handicap pack system.

Alnwick Harrier’s Junior section brought down a squad of 20 and the stand-out performance came from U15 runner Millie Breese, who continued her excellent form and ran an excellent race to finish second.

Millie and Katie Francis, of Birtley, ran head-to-head for the entire race and both looked strong as they emerged onto the finishing field for the final 400m. However, on this day, Katie was the fastest over the final 50m, narrowly beating Millie to a superb second place. A great result to start the New Year.

The U15 girl’s team comprising of Millie, Lauren Brown and Maddy Hall finished fourth overall – Alnwick’s highest place in the overall Davidson Shield competition.

The U11 girls were once again out in their happy smiling team, the girls are a great group and support each other well.

The U13 boys were lead home once again by Max Murray-John who finished in an excellent sixth place.

Lilia Purvis was first U13 girl home and was closely followed by Chloe Givens (pictured below) who had an excellent run.

Finlay Wilde was the only U15 boy on this occasion but finished in an encouraging 35th place.

Ollie Telfer (U17) and Ben Murray-John ran well finishing their 5.5km course in 7th and 9th places, Ollie finishing in a time of 19min 41s.

It was an excellent day where the junior athletes started the New Year with some promising results and lots of enthusiasm.

In the Senior competition, a decent number of Harriers ran in the male and female races.

Alice Tetley-Paul was first home for the women, crossing the line in 27.42. Karen Kelly, Jo Powell and Diana Weightman were all less than a minute behind.
