2016 Les Allcorn 10k

As always there was fine weather for the Les Allcorn 10k and Junior Fun Run on Tuesday 3rd May! Many thanks to the organising committee for producing another fine event, namely Tracey SAMPLE, Gareth BREESE, Vee POLLOCK and particularly Mary PLUMLEY. Mary has been in overall charge of the Les Allcorn for a number of years now and once again came up with the goods. There was a huge turnout of marshals last night, so many thanks to the Harriers who stepped forward to help, as well as their family and friends who also helped out. Thanks go to Northumberland Estates for allowing us to use the splendid Hulne Park, to Rapid Reaction for their 1st Aid which was not needed thankfully and to Lee NIXON for his photos.


Here are the results of the Senior 10k.
