Royal Signals Relays/Druridge Bay Parkrun/Workington Parkrun

For the first time in a number of years Alnwick Harriers entered a team in the Royal Signals Relays which was held at Hetton le Hole on Saturday 14th February. 6 Senior men took part in the event, all running a 2.2 mile lap. A largely youthful team performed very well finishing 21st of the 59 teams in a combined time of 1.16.22. We hope to follow up our participation in this and the recent North East Cross Country Championships, with a decent turn out at the forthcoming Spring Relays. More details of these events, which a decent number of Harriers took part in in 2014, will appear here soon. Many thanks to Ross WILSON for organising our participation in this event, here are our individual performances:

1st Leg-Dan LENG 12.48

2nd Leg-Joe MALLEN 12.34

3rd Leg-Graham SIMPSON 12.30

4th Leg-Ian SIMON 13.26

5th Leg-Steve PATTERSON 12.35

6th leg-Ross WILSON 12.29


Earlier that day the usual decent number of Harriers took part in the Druridge Bay Parkrun, once again in perfect conditions. Richard AGAN was 1st Harrier to finish in 5th place, clocking a course pb of 19.19. He was just a few seconds ahead of Peter GREY who won the male 55 category. Mark HUME was 1st in the male 70 category, whilst Karl BAXTER clocked a course pb and Lee BOWYER made his event debut. Over at Workington Gay and Richard EASTOE both took part. Many congratulations to Gay who not only won the female 60 category, but she also notched a long awaited course pb! Gay knocked an excellent 11 seconds off her previous best, after going so close to beating her previous best several times in recent weeks.
