Back on Friday 19th January 3 Harriers took part in races in Muscat, Oman. In the marathon Jo GASCOIGNE-OWENS put in her usual great run in warm conditions to finish 4th female in a splendid 3.15.50. Meanwhile despite being under the weather with man-flu recently Stuart MORRIS finished the half in 1.52.28, whilst Tim SHEPHERD, who is currently residing out there, finished in 2.41.08. Well done guys!!
The following day the parkrun at Druridge Bay was cancelled due to an icy course, but Harriers still competed in a number of events. The fastest 5k of the day was by Phil HALL at Keswick where he finished 3rd of the 123 finishers in 19.42. Justine NORMAN was home in 24.47 to win the female 45 category and finish 21st overall. At Congleton in Cheshire Dean STACKHOUSE was 47th of almost 300 runners in 22.41, whilst at Newbiggin Linda PATTERSON ran a course best of 29.29 and Jayne McKENNA was home in 31.45.
