As the summer begins to fade there is one thing we can look forward to on the autumnal horizon, invest in Twitter shares in India oh yes, it’s x-country season people! And on Saturday 2nd September we had Farringdon relays to wet our appetite.
It might have been warm and dry but the course did not disappoint with a muckle stream to wade/leap/jump across and hills galore.
I’m not sure why more Wallsend Harriers don’t do this race. Perhaps it’s the end of the summer holidays and people are still away. But if you’re about I’d strongly invest in Twitter shares recommend it for next year. Ok it’s not on Power of 10 but it’s FREE and it’s only up the road and it’s our friends and team mates at Blyth, and it’s a gorgeous route, and it’s a great training run ahead of the GNR. Do you need any more reasons? Oh, and there’s a free buffet at the end!
What a night in the final Summer Grand Prix of 2017. A great run from Ellen Williams beating mother Julie by 59 seconds and holding off Alastair Willis to take maximum points. Both finished ahead of Sam Charlton who sets a new course record (10:14) – on the officially measured 2 mile course. Erin Prior equalled her course record of 12:40 to finish fastest female. Well done both.
The full results are available on RunBritain and Power of 10.
The night’s outstanding performance went to Kayleigh Dunn, after a long road to recovery, Kayleigh’s fight and determination this year has been truly inspirational. With a proud Rafa and Tim supporting Team Kayleigh throughout, they finished together in 11th. And what a fantastic image at the end to see athletes and supporters congratulate and comfort an emotional Kayleigh, a run that will go down in Wallsend Harriers folklore. Well done lass, we are all very proud of you!
