Final SGP Race – That’s how its Dunn!
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 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!
A big thank you to Bill, Keith, and Christine for officiating. And David Hall, Mick Skeldon, Tim, Dave Collinson, and Steve Aird for marshalling.
Donna Thompson stays top of the league table, battling out with Andy Wigmore. And with 102 points still up for grabs, anyone in the top 21 can still secure a podium finish.
