Grand Prix Update

Five Harriers braved Storm Dennis to take part in the first non parkrun Grand Prix event of 2020, the Valentines 5k at Exhibition Park Newcastle. On a dry but very blustery day, Lisa was first Harrier over the line in 12th position and there was age category wins for George, Linda and Diana.

12 – Lisa Baston 22.10

15 – Diana Weightman 23.40

27 – Jen Knight 25.31

33 – Linda Patterson 26.40

47 – George Williams 29.36

Those results, together with parkrun results from the 1st have produced some movement in the table. George has stormed into the lead with Linda and Jennifer filling the 2nd and 3rd place slots.

Coming up in the next few weeks there are 3 chances to boost your position :

The Duergar Night Trail on the 29th  Feb

The Druridge or Pastures parkruns on the 7th Mar

And the Brough Law Fell Race on the 15th Mar

Also, as some of you have already spotted the Anne Allan 10k event has unfortunately been cancelled due to ongoing problems with the route.

As this was one of the Grand Prix Off road events and would have been taking place in April, we have decided to substitute the Trail Outlaws Washington 10k on the 26th April. This event is one of the Trail Outlaws Urban trail series and is always a popular one, usually filling up early, so get you entries in now.

The Urban Trail Series are great events for those new to trail running, always very well organised, marshalled and signed, so there is no tricky navigation to worry about.
