Thank-you to all the teams who took part in another fantastic evening of running in memory of our former chairman Gordon Smith. The rain held off and we had perfect conditions for some super fast times. Big shout out to the officials, volunteers and organisers for all their hard work in making it a successful event. And to Stuart Whitman for his fab photography as ever!
A huge thanks to everyone who took part in our Terry O’Gara 5k memorial race. Conditions were perfect and we had some amazing racing. A huge shout out to our amazing officials and our volunteer marshals 💚💛
We hope you enjoyed the race and hope to see you back at the same venue on Wednesday 10th May for the very popular Gordon Smith Relays. 3 x 2 miles (3 athletes must include at least one vet).
What an absolute nail-biting belter of a cross country season we’ve had this year! With a slow start from the women in the autumn (and I don’t mean slow in speed, but sluggish in numbers), and relegation from division one on the cards they soon rallied round and came out in force for the last big two – Thornley Hall Farm and Alnwick. We knew who we had to beat, but it wasn’t going to be easy.
What a cracking night we had at the Hunting Lodge – fresh from the NECAA Championships in South Shields – celebrating our green and gold achievements from the 2021/22 season (don’t mention the football 😔).
It’s not all about being the fastest. Wallsend Harriers is a family, a team, and it’s as much about representing your club and giving it your all as it is about mega times and podium positions.
Here are this year’s winners. Congratulations to all the very worthy nominees and recipients. Be inspired everyone and let’s make 2023 an epic year for Wallsend Harriers!
Yes! Finally, a proper cross country! We had to wait until the end of October but it was the beautiful Lambton estate that delivered a good old mud-filled, hill fest that delighted as much as it appalled. Just the way it should be.
