Meanwhile in slightly better conditions east of the Pennines, for a second time in consecutive weekends, Andy Squires and Mike Henry completed two races each, culminating in a park run 2021 PB of 21:41 for Andy, and a 1st in his age group for Mike (24:00). Sunday saw the pair travelling to Seaham for the Tommy Memorial 10K trail run, which proved challenging due to windy conditions and a very undulating course. Despite this, they still managed to achieve respectable times of 45:19 (Andy) and 51:05 (Mike).

Also on Sunday, the promise of fast times on a flat course ensured a competitive field for the Jane Tomlinson Middlesbrough 10K, which this year attracted over 1250 runners. Two Alnwick Harriers enjoyed the cultural highlights the course had to offer, which included Albert Park, the Institute of Modern Art and the iconic Transporter Bridge. Despite strong winds both harriers ran 10K personal bests, with Jim Allan coming in at 37:43 and Tess Allan at 1:04:06.
