Alnwick Harriers had a “takeover” day at the Druridge Bay Parkrun on Saturday 4th February where the vast majority of the roles were taken by club members, under the watchful eye of their boss and fellow Harrier, Run Director David HINDMARSH. Despite the decent number helping out there were still some excellent performances from the Harriers taking part, not least from Carole PAGE who made it a hat-trick of victories! Carole finished 24th overall in a decent field and 1st female in 21.50. Other female performances of note were from Kim REDPATH who was 3rd lady home, whilst Mel STEER was winner of the female 45 category. For the men Peter MORALEE was a very good 4th finisher, whilst Mark DOUGLAS was 9th.

In other parkruns that day Rachelle FALLOON was in action at Bury St Edmunds where she ran the fastest 5k by a Harrier so far this year, clocking 19.57 to finish 5th overall and 2nd female. At Workington Richard EASTOE was 44th in 23.54 and up at St Andrews Jayne McKENNA was 160th in 29.50.
Over in Spain Jocelyn BOLAM was in action in the Almeria Half Marathon where she clocked 2.22.15.
Finally for the weekend Cris ATWELL took part in the Winter Wonderland Marathon, a multi lap race at Newcastles Town Moor. Cris finished in 4.12.26, agonisingly just 6 seconds slower than his previous appearance in one of these races hosted by the North East Marathon Club.
