North Eastern X-Country Championships

The North Eastern Cross Country Championships will soon be upon us.
It takes place on Saturday 12th December at 11am at Sedgefield. And to finish the day off in style our Christmas party follows the same evening in Wallsend. A great way to celebrate the achievements of the day.

The U13 boys go off first at 11am followed by races up to the senior men starting at 13:00 and senior women at 13:55. 
It’s £5 for seniors and £4 for juniors.
It would be great to end the year with a bang and the green and gold vests coming out in force. 

More information is available here.

Closing date is the 13th November so please let Becki and Harry know at the club or via Facebook asap.

Newbie Lyndsey takes the victory on the opening WGP

New to the club, Lyndsey Broderick, took the honours tonight with a time of 26:49 securing maximum 50 points. Nina Wilkinson posted a fast time with a 22:23 for second place and David Hall rounded off the podium.

Our fastest female of the night was Becki Newman with a time of 21:31. Well done all.

Next race is the Temple Park Cross Country this Saturday. You will be awarded 10 points if this is your first XC of the year, and 15 additional points if you took part at Tanfield. GOOD LUCK ALL.

Many thanks for my beautiful assistant Leanne for officiating and helping with the results. Click here to see them in full.


Club Championships – for the record

In August we printed an article on the website about this year’s Club Championships that stated David Scoins was the new v60 record holder. This was an error as the record was and still is held by our late former chairman Terry O’Gara (39.24 in 2005 at the age of 63). This was a genuine mistake and apologies to David (who should still be acknowledged for an awesome run) and Terry’s family.
