NEHL: Druridge bay XC


We had representatives in the U11 girls with Billie Slassor and Shae Patterson. U11 Boys had Euan Wayman as our sole competitor. U13 Boys: Matthew Green stepped up to this longer distance and completed the course comfortably (a lie he says). Grace Chapman ran in the U15 girls for the first time and dad Pete went on to run afterwards with the senior men. Well done to all the juniors!






The women were inspirational, watching throughout the field, they all really carved their way through. At the front Louise and Nina worked so well off each other as did Beth and Alison. But really all the lasses ran fantastically and I don’t want to miss anyone out. Keep this up and promotion will be achievable given the depth and quality of the squad. Really made me want to run my best after seeing such a great team effort. Well done Heaton women!

The chaps again managed a good turn out. Matt Hetherington was on the front line despite having raced the Langdale horseshoe fell race the day before (13 miles and just shy of 5000ft of climb, over shocking ground and finishing in the top 70 in a class field) And off we all went, Matt took off after the front two dropping a fourth runner in the first lap ( he reports his legs were quite sore afterwards).  Sam Thorpe had a blinder running well in his first xc in a Heaton vest.  Was grand to see so many of our stalwarts out running well. Thomas G had the joy of stepping up to the senior distance from the U17 and just a week after his first half marathon, his feet bear testament to it…. Our team results from Div 1.  Of note, men’s B team finished above Wallsend A….
