NEHL Herrington Park/Great Edinburgh Winter Run/Druridge Bay Parkrun/Workington Parkrun/Durham Parkrun

A decent group of Harriers travelled down to Herrington Park near Sunderland to take part in the 4th of the 6 North East Harrier League cross country fixtures on Saturday 7th January. For the Seniors the stars were Isaac MOSS and David MILNE for the men, and Karen KELLY for the women. There were also some excellent runs by a great number of Juniors who took part!


The Senior Men finished a credible 6th of the 11 teams in Division 2 on the day, a performance which saw them drop down to 5th in the overall standings. However lots of the teams are bunched together and with the home fixture looming on the horizon in early March we should finish well up there at the end of the season. First home for us, in his first race in the Senior ranks, was Isaac MOSS. He was 10th overall, not far ahead of the impressive David MILNE. As a result Isaac is now in the Medium Pack and David joins the really fast guys in the Fast Pack. Adam FLETCHER was 3rd counter from the Mediums, just under a minute ahead of the fast improving Jon DUFFY. 5th was Medium Pack runner and team captain Dominic HARRIS, whilst 6th and final counter was Adam SPILLER. Well done to the non counters, among whom Howard TAYLOR was making his Harrier League debut. Results:

10-Isaac MOSS 37.42 (S)
