The evening got off to a cracking start from an Alnwick Harriers point of view with Adam WEIGHTMAN and Rosie MURTON winning the Junior Boys and Girls races! Morpeth Harriers’ Philip WINKLER was going for his 5th successive win in the Junior Race, but it was Adam who prevailed on this occasion against his older rival, finishing just under 20 seconds ahead. 3rd place went to Adam SHAFIQ, whilst the next Harrier was 5th placed Ben KELLY who performed superbly considering he’s in the Under 13 category. In the Girls race Rosie was a convincing winner, beating Morpeth’s Lizzie RANK and Alnwick’s Amy THORNE by well over a minute. Age category winners were:

The winner of the 2013 Les Allcorn 10k was Low Fell’s Jonathan ARCHER who finished the course in 34.39. Jonathan finished almost a minute ahead of 2nd place Andrew HUSSEY representing Cheltenham Harriers, who in turn just pipped Morpeth Harriers youngster Sam HANCOX into 3rd. First Alnwick Harrier was once again Bruce CROMBIE who bettered his finishing position from last year by one place to finish 5th, winning the male 40 category! He was followed home by 16 year old Daniel LENG and Graham SYERS. Other age category winners were Jim ALDER (male 50) and Norman CLARK (male 60) both of Morpeth Harriers. Low Fell put out a strong team tonight and comfortably won the mens team prize.

The ladies race was a total success for arguably the greatest female Alnwick Harrier of all time, Jo GASCOIGNE-OWENS! Jo won the female race, knocking 12 seconds off her 10k pb and setting another 10k female club record in the process. A great achievement considering the hard course. She was over 3 minutes ahead of her nearest rival Angela McGURK of Jarrow and Hebburn AC, whilst North Shields Poly’s Suzanne THEW was 3rd female. 4th overall was unattached Hilary ROSS who won the female 55 category, whilst our own Ella BROWN won the female 35 category, with Marie DROZDOWICZ of Elswick Harriers taking the female 45 category. Thanks to great runs from Sarah FAIRBAIRN in a huge 10k pb and Ella, Alnwick Harriers won the female team prize!
