On Saturday 4th September, Ingram Valley was the new venue for the Anne Allan (approx 9K) trail run held in memory of the dedicated and popular Alnwick Harrier. A multi terrain route and stunning scenery with ideal running conditions saw 36 runners take part which is hoped to be an annual event at Ingram.
