Druridge Bay Parkrun/Newbiggin By The Sea Parkrun/Bushy Parkrun/Workington Parkrun/Ingram to Wooler Border Trail Race/Inter Counties Cross Country Champs

On a filthy old morning down at Druridge Bay 7 Harriers battled their way through mud and puddles to finish the 5k parkrun. 1st Harrier home was reasonably new Harrier Robert BADDELEY in 22.15, whilst other headlines include Mel STEER and Carole PAGE who were 2nd and 3rd females home. Results:

13-Robert BADDELEY 22.15

26-Mel STEER 24.02

27-Neil HAMILTON 24.05

28-Harris HALL 24.18

31-Carole PAGE 24.35

36-Phil HALL 25.15

121-Lorna STEPHENSON 36.09

Elsewhere Helen DICKINSON travelled down to tackle the original Parkrun at Bushy Park where she finished in 28.22. Richard EASTOE completed the Workington Parkrun in 29.13 and Stuart BRUCE finished the Newbiggin event in 37.38.

The following day a number of Harriers were in action in the first race in the Border Trail series, a tough 10 miler from Ingram Valley to Wooler. Well done to all for taking part. Steve STUDLEY improves week after week and finished a brilliant 13th of over 100 runners, whilst Alice TETLEY-PAUL was our 1st female finisher. Results:

13-Steve STUDLEY 1.23.59

47-Alice TETLEY-PAUL 1.39.09

49-Dave BARTRUM 1.41.22

52-Mel STEER 1.42.29

67-Maureen BARTRUM 1.50.09

83-Carol DAVISON 1.56.36

84-Kim BRONZE 1.56.46

89-Mairi CAMPBELL 2.00.11

Finally well done to Jo GASCOIGNE-OWENS and Junior Harrier Lauren BROWN who both represented the region in the Inter Counties Championships at Loughborough on Saturday. The course at Prestwold Hall was exceptionally muddy setting a challenge for all the teams. Lauren ran a good race finishing 24th of the 300 runners and as first counter for the north east team. The U13 girls team finished a respectable 15th place out of the 42 teams. Next week sees more of the Juniors compete again at National level at the English Schools Championship in Leeds where hopefully their success will continue.
