Graham makes victorious come back at first WGP!

Well done to Graham Armstrong for taking maximum points after coming back from injury. Mark Summers took 2nd place with an excellent 20:32 just ahead of a fantastic run and new under 15 record holder Samuel Charlton, in a sensational time of 17:19. Well done Samuel. It wasn’t the only record of the night, Mark’s son Matty Summers, took more time off his under 13 time, posting 18:45. Cracking run Matty. Fastest male of the night was Simon Lyon with a 17:07, Simon’s better half Sarah Robson was the fastest female with 19:32. Well done both.

With two XC and a WGP down, and SIXTEEN races left to go, Erin Prior currently sits at the top, ahead of Oisian. Full results here.

Next race is the Wallsend take-over Park Run at Rising Sun Country Park on 5th November, you’ll gain a maximum 50 points whether you volunteer or run. Remember to wear your vest, hoodie, anything that will publicise Wallsend Harriers. See you then!

And the winner of the 2016 Summer Grand Prix is…

A very well done to all those who took part in the summer grand prix 2016. After many races and many points, the winners this year are Joseph Hoben and Andrew Wigmore. Despite a valiant effort at the now notoriously difficult Tynedale 10 mile, neither Andy or Joseph beat their handicap and share the top spot. Well done fellas! Emily James holds onto 3rd position overall. Excellent summer running Emily!
