Morpeth 10k

On Tuesday 7th August Morpeth Harriers hosted their undulating two lap 10k just outside the town at Tranwell, a race which formed part of our 2018 Grand Prix series.

Dan clocked a very good 33.54, to hold off the 3rd placed runner by just a couple of seconds. James WILLOUGHBY was next back for us in a very good 20th, just over 30 seconds ahead of Dominic HARRIS. Also within the top 50 were Ian SIMON and Jon ARCHER, whilst reasonably new Harrier Laurence REEVES was 51st in 40.24. Peter GREY was winner of the male 60 category and also took home the North East Masters 10k Championships 10k gold medal! 1st Alnwick female back was Tracey SAMPLE in 46.44, whilst Bev BLYTHE ran well and Lorna STEPHENSON clocked a 10k pb!

A large number of entries attracted good competition on a fantastic day.

North East Youth Development League-Fixture 4

Going into the 4th and final North East Youth Development League athletics meeting on Sunday 15th July Alnwick Harriers were placed 3rd overall. They were just one place behind Tynedale Harriers who were 2nd to Gateshead Harriers. The combined team of Alnwick Harriers and Blyth Running Club were well represented with a turnout of nearly 40 athletes. It was a hot day with a light breeze so although not ideal for the middle distance runners, conditions were excellent for sprinting, throwing and jumping.

Talia THOMPSON (U15) had another excellent days throwing managing personal best throws in all her events. Talia won the discus with a new club record (CR) throw of 19.47m and team mate Maddy HALL was runner up with a good 15.22m. Maddy threw further in the hammer with an excellent personal best of 18.55m (CR) to finish 2nd overall and Talia was 3rd with 18.07m. Finally in the Shot Put Talia was runner up (8.84m) and Maddy 6th with 6.08m. An excellent days throwing by the girls.

Finlay TELFER (U15) threw an excellent personal best and club record of 18.41m in the boys hammer (4kg) to come 3rd. Finlay was also 3rd in his Shot Put and Javelin competitions. In the U13 throwing events Ellie PRICE showed exceptional promise finishing in 2nd place in only her second shot put competition throwing 5.79m. In the Javelin Billy CLAYTON managed a long throw of 22.12m and Harris HALL 18.59m.

The high jump provided much excitement with Ollie TELFER surprising himself by jumping a fantastic 1.60m setting a new club record to win the U17 boys competition. Joseph GODDEN jumped 1.35m, Millie BREESE 1.28m, Ellie PRICE 1.20m and Beth CARRAGHER 1.15m. An excellent day for the high jumpers who have been practising hard recently with Sue SKIRROW.

In the long jump Joseph GODDEN (U15) jumped furthest on the day of the Alnwick athletes with 4.55m. Sam POTTS and Hannah JOHNSTON both managed 3.86m jumping furthest for the girls. Jess MOSES managed a good 3.48m and in the U13’s Evie GODDEN jumped 2.79m.

On the track the fastest Alnwick Sprinter was Sam POTTS completing the 100m in 14.0s. Eleanor HEELEY was the quickest U13 girl in 16.6s.

In the 800m the fastest times were recorded by Millie BREESE and Hannah JOHNSTON only being separated by 0.1s. Hannah ran a well-paced race finishing strongly over the last 100m but wasn’t quite quick enough to beat Millie to the line who finished in 2nd overall place in an excellent personal best of 2.32s. James CARRAGHER and Joseph GODDEN ran the U15 boys race and Ellie PRICE ran a good 3.01s in the U13 race.

The exceptionally warm conditions seemed to discourage the 1500m runners and as a result of the low numbers the U17 and U15 boys and girls were combined for their race. Lauren BROWN, Ollie TELFER and Ben MURRAY JOHN all lined up together for their race. Ollie was second home overall in a personal best time of 4.41s, Ben next Alnwick runner with 4.54 then Lauren winning the girls race in a good time of 5.05s. Max MURRAY JOHN (U13) ran an excellent race finishing 2nd in a good time of 5.10s. In the girls race Beth CARRAGHER was first Alnwick girl home in 6.14s with Evie GODDEN and Eleanor HEELEY not far behind.

It was an excellent day for the Alnwick and Blyth team and a fantastic conclusion to the league. All of the athletes performed superbly and made excellent progress, dozens of personal best performances were achieved and several Club records broken.

Annabel LILLICO took her second trophy in 2 successive road races by winning the first lady trophy in the Tweed Striders organised Berwick Curfew Run on Wednesday 4th July, a 1.3mile dash, single circuit around the town’s Elizabethan Walls, on a circular route to beat the sound of the Curfew bells with a challenging steep hill included. Annabel completed the circuit in 8.56 to take the first senior lady trophy following winning the First Under 40 Female trophy at the Peterhead half marathon in June. Annabel and dad Jim marked their 4th half marathon in 2 months by completing the recent Peterhead Half Marathon. The challenge over the 4 runs, was to run together at all times, carry out a European Run (Berlin Half Marathon), Large City Run ( Leeds Half Marathon), a half marathon trail (the challenging, some say brutal Durham Coastal Marathon) and a running club arranged run at Peterhead.

The plan at Peterhead, the last of the quartet, was to gain a PB for Annabel and best in age group for Jim. Success for Annabel as she came first in the under 40 women class and Jim finished 2nd in the male 60 category. Both received their awards in a podium presentation and represented Alnwick Harriers in team colours. Well done to Annabel as through hard work, training and commitment it all paid just rewards!
