North Eastern Counties XC Championships


It was great to see some Green and Golds turn out for the North East XC Championships on December 8th.

This year we made a return to Wrekenton, which is the familiar opening venue for the XC Harrier League season. But, unlike the mild, dry and often sunny conditions of the first Harrier League fixture in September, this occasion was much more tempestuous (and as a result, tonnes of fun!)

Young Guns flying high at the opening WGP handicap ?

A huge turnout with 48 runners crossing the line, with our juniors sweeping the podium.

?25:17 – Daniel Broderick
?25:25 – Alfie Short
?26:59 – Zara Ratcliffe 

In terms of fastest individual times, Danielle Hodgkinson was our leading lady in a rapid 17:32 and setting a new ladies course record in the process.
However the plaudits go once again to Sam Charlton who ran the 5k route in an astonishing 15:36 – a new PB for him as well as the WGP course record! Unbelievable that both records have been broken!!!

Thank you to Bill, Simon, Steve, Donna & Stephen for their support in making the event possible.
