Morpeth 10k

Morpeth Harriers hosted their annual 10k road race on Tuesday 1st August, a 2 lap course around quiet road at Tranwell which was held in excellent conditions for fast times. This was probably one of the best overall team performances in recent years for Alnwick Harriers with 2 top 10 finishers, several more just outside the top 10, a 3rd place in the ladies race, an age category win and a plethora of 10k pbs!David MILNE 010817First home for us in a brilliant 34.10 was David MILNE. This time was 4 seconds faster than his Les Allcorn 10k performance in May and saw him finish 4th overall. Also in the top 10, after his great runs recently at the Northumberland Coastal Run and the Druridge Bay Parkrun, was Dan TURNBULL. Dan clocked 34.58 to finish 9th, not far ahead of 11th placed Dan LENG. Richard JOHNSON put in a solid run, whilst James WILLOUGHBY and Allan FOGGON continue to improve, both running excellently on the night. Mark DOUGLAS ran a surprisingly fast time, by his own admission, whilst Peter McEWAN and Ian HORSLEY had a great battle and finished 2 seconds apart. It was great to see Cris ATWELL back in 10k action as well!

Suzie BM 010817

For our ladies Jo GASCOIGNE-OWENS was 3rd female finisher in 39.51, exactly 3 minutes ahead of our 2nd finisher Carole PAGE. Druridge Bay Parkrun legend Carole took home the female 55 category prize and was just under a minute ahead of Suzie BARWISE-MUNRO who made a rare but welcome appearance in a Harriers vest!
