Newburn River Run

10 Harriers turned out for the club at the Newburn River Run on Wednesday 15th June. This race is a generally flat one which starts at Newburn Leisure Centre, before heading to Wylam, over a bridge and then back on the opposite bank of the Tyne to the finish. Its officially a 6.5 mile race, though this year there was a slight detour in the last couple of miles meaning it came in at just over 6.6 miles.


First Harrier to finish, continuing his mightily impressive season, was Tim FALCONER in 44.37. Next home in 66th of the 266 runners and 3 seconds quicker than in 2014 was Mark DOCTOR, whilst 3rd Harrier was John CUTHBERT. For the ladies first to complete was Denise DRUMMOND, followed by a slightly injured Angie EMBLETON and then Laura McLEAN (Jr). Well done to everyone! Results:
