Nunnykirk 10k/Druridge Bay Parkrun/Penrose Parkrun/Workington Parkrun/Massapequa 5k/Warkworth Show Fun Run

Three Harriers completed the first ever Nunnykirk 10k on Wednesday 16th August, which was hosted by Run Northumberland. The event was described as challenging but enjoyable and it was certainly the latter for Angie EMBLETON who celebrated an age category win and was 3rd female on the night. Justine NORMAN finished 2nd in her age category, meanwhile it was good to see Gareth Pearson back competing! Results:

32-Gareth PEARSON 48.38

34-Angie EMBLETON 48.44

68-Justine NORMAN 54.05

On Saturday 19th August a number of Harriers ran at our local Druridge Bay Parkrun. Carole PAGE claimed yet another gold in the female race, holding off Alice TETLEY-PAUL by a mere 8 seconds. For the men, David HINDMARSH was first back with a strong 20.47 in difficult conditions. The wind made John CUTHBERTs 13 seconds 5k personal best arguably the run of the weekend. John just can’t stop running personal bests at present! Results:

21-David HINDMARSH 20.47 (73.94%)

22-John CUTHBERT 20.55 (61.83%)

33-Carole PAGE 21.55

36-Alice TETLEY-PAUL 22.03 (67.12%)

83-Laura McLEAN Jr 25.49

120-John ROSS 28.11

145-Christine HARDY 29.41

157-Alex KNIGHT 30.46

179-Jayne McKENNA 32.44


Elsewhere on the Parkrun scene Tony ROSKILLY ran 25.12 to finish 106th at Penrose Parkrun in Cornwall. Also the EASTOEs ran Workington Parkrun with Richard 43rd in 25.36 and Gay volunteering as a tail runner

The award for running in the most obscure location of the weekend went to Rachelle FALLOON who ran an encouraging 20:53 in the Massapequa 5K at Long Island, New York as she comes back from injury.


Finally this weekend saw the annual Warkworth Show Fun Run. The Warkworth Show run is only 2.4k, however this includes finishing around the castle moat, which makes it challenging. There was a great turn out of Harriers, which included a promising victory for Junior Joe FLANIGHAN. Ollie TELFER will be keen to tell his friends about defeating father Mike! The female race was won by Junior Harrier Lauren BROWN and there was a 1-2 for our Senior ladies courtesy of Sarah GRAY and Tracey SAMPLE. Well Done to all!
