Run Northumberland BIG 10

The final Grand Prix event of the 2016 season took place on Sunday 27th November, when the Run Northumberland organised BIG 10 took place. The undulating 10 mile road race starts and finishes at Kirkley Hall and takes in quiet country roads around Ogle and Whalton. Despite the race being a lot harder than the flat Brampton to Carlisle race a week before there were still some very good performances. In a rare but welcome start Allan FOGGON finished a very good 21st in his first race at this distance. 2nd home was David HINDMARSH and 3rd was, in his second race in 24 hours, Dean STACKHOUSE. The trio won the mens team prize for us! Another winner for the club was Mel STEER who won the female 45 category. Also well done to Mark DOCTOR who also took part in the race the day after the tough cross country, to Richard JOHNSON who is on the road back to full fitness and to David HENDERSON who was having his first race for the club for some time. Harriers results are here (finish positions and chip times):
