So the chips were down at Alnwick, we were second from bottom and facing the drop with Low fell. The course had been fine tuned with the bottle neck on the first climb being removed and a wide gate substituted  further up.  Great route choice Alnwick, It made the route even more run able. The rest of the course was as previous years , except bone dry under foot. I was seriously worried about who would run after the flurry of injuries following the National XC championships.

NEHL Alnwick – Ladies Captains Report

The penultimate fixture of this season’s Harrier League at Alnwick was an important one for Heaton Ladies. We were slipping down Division 1 and needed a strong team performance to be sure of missing the relegation zone. The 10 ladies who turned up all ran hard and did us proud. Our counters this time were: Nicola, who, with her brilliant 12th place from the mediums, earns promotion to the fast pack for Wrekenton (at least there will be someone to keep me company at the start); next in was Laura: Continue Reading →

On Saturday was the annual running of the Northern Athletics Cross Country Championships. This year held at Pontefract Racecourse. It was a heavy course in parts and testing. No major hills of note but a good tester for future cross countries this season. It was a good turnout from the club and excellent performances.
