On Wednesday 29th July 3 Harriers were in action in the latest Run Northumberland event, the Wallington 10k. This race starts in Cambo and includes some nice downhill stretches, followed by a long hard climb into Scots Gap before finishing in the grounds of Wallington Hall. In one of the eye catching performances of the year Richard JOHNSON knocked over 2 minutes off his 10k pb, finishing this tough course in a brilliant 37.48 to take 6th place of the 158 finishers. Further back both Mark DOCTOR and Pauline AITCHISON were well outside their 10k pb’s, though there was consolation for Pauline as she won the 1st female 45 prize! Results:

6-Richard JOHNSON 37.48

38-Mark DOCTOR 44.43

69-Pauline AITCHISON 48.35
