Les Allcorn 10k and Junior Fun Run 2014

Well done to all the runners who took part in the Les Allcorn 10k and Junior 3k in Hulne Park, Alnwick on Tuesday 6th May. 112 runners lined up for the start of the Senior Race and 88 for the Junior event both of which were held on new courses, this year starting and finishing at the Ratten Row entrance to the Park. It seems that every year the weather is kind to us and this years race was no exception with the sun shining all evening, meaning that running conditions were pretty much perfect! Many thanks as always to the Alnwick Harriers committee and the marshals for organising and helping out at the event. Thanks in particular to Mary PLUMLEY and Sue BOLAM for their superb efforts in arranging the race, and to Mike HENRY for the post race presentation. Also thanks to Rapid Reaction and of course to His Grace the Duke of Northumberland for allowing us to hold the event in such a great setting. Finally well done to Adam SPILLER for catering duties, with £175 going to the Great North Air Ambulance!
