Harrier League at Jarrow plus Norman Woodcock 5 mile race

The weather was relatively kind to the athletes who turned out in their droves to this event, and although there were a few spots of rain, it was interspersed with the odd spot of sun and above freezing temperatures, which is more than can be said for some fixtures in previous years!

A short video of u 11’s can be seen here, with a second one here, that one even showing the sunshine as proof! Apologies for not getting many athletes on camera – it was the first time using Vine and it obviously takes practice (and a faster phone!) Photos from the day, courtesy of Hippienixonphotography can be seen here. A youtube video showing our senior women athletes can be seen here.

The younger athletes did really well today, with Matty Cleugh having to settle for a rare second place in the u11’s today, whilst Dillon Openshaw came in 5th in the u13 race. Molly Elliott came 8th in the u13 girls race, with Rhianne Bell also achieving 8th place in her u15 race. Joanne Bell will be writing a race report soon, keep checking back for updates!

Here are the results for all Birtley athletes – full results can be viewed here.
