It’s never too early to get excited about x-country!

Ok I know summer has barely got started but for those chomping at the bit for the next x-country season you’ll be pleased to know details have been announced!

Click here for the full list of dates and venues.

Yes it’s usually pretty muddy and sometimes a tad chilly but it’s soooo much fun. We did so well last season but we can do even better this season.

So get your spikes at the ready and get stuck in!

Matty Summers-aults into first place!

Matty Summers won tonight’s SGP in a time of 11:37. Fastest male on the night was Simon Lyon (10:57) and fastest female was Erin Prior (12:40 a new ladies record).

Full results are attached.

Well done to everyone who ran. Thanks also to the timekeepers, marshals, first aiders, lead runner and tail bike.

The results are now available on Power of 10.

The last SGP is on Tuesday 22nd August and fingers crossed Gary Lewis will be back and you can all pester him again about his handicap times!

The jewels of June

Big congratulations to our awesome juniors, who finished second at the third NEYDL meet at the weekend (25th June). Hosted by us at Churchill Playing Fields it was a gorgeous day and a great atmosphere.

Full results are here.

Many thanks to Christine Stretesky for her invaluable help with the results. Also to all the officials for giving their time to make the day possible.

And well done to Simon Williams, team manager, all coaches and parents and of course the young athletes in team Wallsend and Gosforth, for putting in some great efforts to secure second place in a nail-biting finish!

Later on in the week our ladies put in a fantastic performance at the Anita Nott Memorial Race (see full race report on the website). And our men did us proud at Tynedale 10k the following evening.

Dave Diston finished 36th out of 414 in 38:08. Andy Wigmore got ever closer to his sub 40 40 10k target with a frustrating 40:04. Mick Skeldon was less than 30 seconds behind in an excellent 40:32 and Ian Gowing finishing strong in 41:45.

DELIGHT AT DENE – HARRIER LADIES CLINCH SECOND PLACE

Over 400 women runners packed onto Armstrong Bridge over Jesmond Dene on Monday (26th June) to run their socks off in memory of Anita Nott.

Anita was an active (and pretty outstanding by the sounds of it) member of Heaton Harriers who tragically lost her life in September 2006 whilst out on a training run. This women only run was dedicated to her name and is well supported every year.
