In the light of the terrible events in Boston it seems trivial to talk of times, performances, etc. Our thoughts are with the families of those caught up in the incident. Dave HINDMARSH ran the marathon in 4.18.48. Glad to say that Dave is safe and well, and we look forward to seeing him back home soon.
On Sunday 14th April Cris ATWELL took part in the Druridge Bay Marathon. Cris was 20th of the 37 finishers in 4.16.48, finishing 2nd in the male 50 category.
Also that morning Bruce CROMBIE was in action just 24 hours after his excellent performance in the Cragside 10k, this time in a much shortened Cheviot Summit Fell Race. Due to poor conditions on the top this years race was a low level route of approximately 4.4 miles. In an epic finish which will still be talked of in years to come (by Bruce) Bruce and Durham Fell Runner Andy BLACKETT both finished in 36.54 after a 100 metre sprint at the end. Bruce was just beaten into 2nd place by a nose.
