NOTAN Athletics Grand Prix

On Sunday, Alicia Purvis and Lucy McGowan competed at the final NOTAN (North of Tyne Athletics Network) match in Whitley Bay.

Alicia rounded off an excellent season with an all-time championship record performance in howler throw, where she managed to smash the existing record by 7m with a throw of 28.4m, outstanding for someone who is still only 8 years old!

Alicia performed well in all the running, jumping and throwing events throughout the season and went on to win the overall first place award for Y3 girls!

Leila Thompson who was competing in Liverpool this weekend managed to secure an excellent third place in the Grand Prix in the Year 6 girls’ competition.

Northern Athletics Age Group Championships

Also on Sunday, Talia and Leila Thompson travelled to Liverpool for the Northern Athletics Age Group Championships.

Both girls competed in shot put; Talia in the U15 category and Leila at U13.

Talia, who has been injured for the latter part of the season, managed an excellent 5th place, while Leila, who threw a personal best of 7.88m, took an excellent third place.

Leila’s throw was particularly impressive as she is still in her first year as an Under 13.

Junior round-up – North East Grand Prix 5

Wednesday evening was the fifth athletics match in the North East Grand Prix summer series.

Another excellent evening’s weather produced a superb set of results once again for the throwers.

Finlay Telfer and Oscar Chisholm managed personal best performances to finish 2nd and 3rd in their shot put and discus events.

Talia Thompson, still wearing an ankle brace, won the U15 girls’ discus and hammer and managed 2nd place in the shot put!

Leila Thompson won the U13 girls’ discus with a big personal best of 18.70m. This excellent throw also now ranks her as number one in the North East. Leila was also runner up in the shot put.

On the track, Ollie Telfer ran the 1500m, Lauren Brown ran a season’s best in the 800m and Oscar Chisholm ran a good 100m.

Talia is now leading the U15 Grand Prix event and Oscar and Leila are both in second place in the U13 category.

There is one event left in the season so they all have an excellent opportunity to prove themselves.

Junior Round-up – North East Youth Development League

The Alnwick Harrier Juniors made club history at the weekend by winning their league in the North East Youth Development League.

The composite team they formed with Blyth Running Club finished ahead of Blaydon, Tynedale, South Shields/Elswick, Jarrow/Phoenix and Gosforth/Wallsend.

Winning three out of four of their matches they have gained promotion to the first division for the first time. A fantastic achievement for two relatively small clubs!

The warm humid day produced some exceptionally heavy rain showers with all the athletes and spectators getting drenched on multiple occasions.

Despite the rain, there were excellent individual performances.

In the sprints, Sam Potts and Lydia Smith both won their 100m races. Lydia in her first competition as an U17 also won the 300m and formed part of the girls’ winning 4 x 100m relay team.

Lauren Brown was runner up in the U15G 300m.

Thomas Davison ran a quick 200m to finish in 25.6s!

In the middle-distance races, Sam Potts was once again victorious winning the 800m by a
comfortable margin. Ollie Telfer had similar success winning the U17 men’s race in 2min 06s.

Ailsa Batley finished 3rd in the U17 800m and Chloe Givens finished 4th U13G. In the 1500m Lauren Brown finished 2nd U15G and Ava Findlay made her debut league appearance in the U13 girls’ race.

The throwers once again had a good week with Finlay Telfer winning both the shot put and hammer.

Ailsa Batley won the U17G shot put and Alfie Temple was runner up in the U13 boys’ competition.

Harris Hall won the U13 javelin with Ruaridh Batley as runner up. Gregor Batley won the U15 javelin and Antje Hall came second in the U17 category. Leila Thompson won the U13 girls’ javelin with an excellent 22.73m grade two throw.

Leila Thompson also won the U13 discus and Oscar Chisholm was runner up in the boys.

Despite having her injured ankle in a brace Talia Thompson won the U15G discus and Ellie Price was second.

Talia continued her success winning the shot with Olivia Temple finishing in 3rd place. Finally Talia managed to come second in the javelin, a good day considering her very restricted range of movement.

Ollie Telfer jumped 1.60m to finish joint first in the high jump and Lauren Brown 3rd. Billy Clayton managed a good personal best jump of 4.03m in the long jump.

Considering the exceptionally difficult wet conditions the athletes scored highly and managed a convincing match win.

Sunday’s event marked 40 years of the race and the guest of honour was Archie Jenkins who initiated the event all those years ago and was also the first winner.

He kindly started this year’s race with a few words explaining that there were 12 people in the first race and over the years it has expanded, with 1,250 people registering each year to take part.

Archie then joined the race to compete, he also adjudicated the event, what a hero! He is pictured below (Morpeth Harriers vest) with Laura McLean, race director, and chairman of Alnwick Harriers, David Hindmarsh.

The Alnmouth Village Golf Club came up trumps providing refreshments, a marquee for our presentation and a great place for runners and spectators alike to gather at the finish.

First Aid was covered by Rapid Reaction NE Ltd who thankfully did not have any serious medical conditions to deal with.

Parking was provided by the Alnmouth Football Club and the Burgage Holders on Alnmouth Beach. It was such a busy day for them but a big thanks for all the hard work.

Also thanks to the National Trust and Landowners for allowing us access to their beautiful sites.

A huge thanks to all the spectators who came along to cheer on family and
friends. It makes such a difference to our competitors and is really appreciated.

Well done to all of the runners and thank you to all of the event marshals and organisers.

Praise for this year’s Coastal Run

A number of runners have written in to praise this year’s event.

Barry Maddison wrote:

“I just wanted to thank you again for the place in the run. What an amazing run. The scenery, organisation and the marshals were outstanding and the course incredible. I agree with my dad that it’s the best run I’ve ever done and I run many off-track ones.

“My dad met me at the end and at 83 brought back all the old memories of the 10 times he had completed it many years ago.

“I’ve attached a photo with him from the end.”

 

Another runner, Carol Armston, wrote:

“Thank you for the great organisation. The day was awesome for many reasons but mainly due to the option of starting at 9.30.

“I was very hesitant about asking for an early start but for me it was absolutely the right thing to do. I thought the front runners might be a bit irritated by slow runners getting in their way but the support I got from them was fabulous! Verbal encouragement and support as they passed pulled me along. It was unexpected but so lovely!

“Another brilliant result of the early start was that my youngest son started with the mass and caught me up on Seaton sands just about 1 mile from the end so we finished together, not something I thought I’d ever be able to do again.

“On a slightly sour note I thought the group that went off early because they had left their dogs in the cars in Alnmouth were highly irresponsible and abused the opportunity.”
