Tuesday 11 September will be the last training session at the Rising Sun for this year. Tuesday sessions will then move back to Hadrian Leisure at the usual time (6.20pm for a 6.30pm start).
Well Done to Graham Armstrong for holding on to the top spot and taking the coveted Summer Grand Prix Trophy. Needing only 33 points in Wednesday’s Quayside 5km, Graham took no chances and scored the maximum 50 points. On a fast 5k race, half of the Wallsend Harriers banked the max. Including Kevin Wilson, going sub-17 and climbing three places into second, with Andy Wigmore holding third.
