Alnwick XC: Mens race report

Alnwick, the town of my birth and the theatre of dreams for the final fixture of the harrier league.  A relegation dogfight between Elvet, Ourselves, Wallsend and the Poly in the top division.  Only three points between the lot of us.

NEHL Herrington: Well done Ladies!

However what happened was a small but perfectly formed turn out.  The weather has obviously been wet for several days and the course had cut up nicely for the ladies starting.
