Junior Harriers Xmas Handicap!

20 brave Juniors and their equally brave parents turned out for this years Junior Harriers Xmas Handicap, which was once again held on the particularly exposed Alnmouth beach.  Many thanks must go to Geoff MALLEN and his band of little helpers who helped set up base camp and most importantly of all the barbeque for the post race sausage butties.

Unfortunately even Brenda the Great with all of her contacts, could not persuade King Neptune to stop the advance of the freezing North Sea this year. As the tide was in it was agreed to run the 2K race along the coastal path northwards, crossing over and returning back along the other side of the golf course.  This slippery route proved to be ever so slightly perilous as there were some casualties, all of whom still managed to complete the race!

The race itself went well, in dry and sunny however very windy conditions, with all parents shouting words of encouragement to all runners. First girl home was Evie GODDEN, followed by Joe HEMSLEY for first boy, both winning this years trophies. They were followed by Chloe GIVENS who ran a fantastic race to finish in overall 3rd place, each of them also receiving ANOTHER selection box. Well done to all the Juniors who ran today and all managed big smiles. A big thank you also to all the coaches and parent helpers today.
