The main event of the weekend was the National Road Relay Champs – full story can be seen here.
However, there were also other events taking place last weekend. On Saturday 4th October, lots of our younger athletes took part in the Monkton Minors XC competition. Well done to our under 11 athletes – individual results here. We retained the overall trophy for the 4th year in a row – team results here.
We had 22 runners from 300+ on a cold, wet morning at Monkton – a magnificent effort from you all. Thanks to Macey Bradshaw and Lea Brown for warming up the youngsters and supporting them all from start to finish!
On Sunday 5th October, a couple of our athletes took part in the Hellhole 10k race, organised by Derwentside AC – the weather co-operated and produced a cool, fresh but sunny morning, ideal for this challenging course. Our usual Birtley runner in this race, Gerard Murray, was injured, but he was ably represented by his son Andrew – here he is getting a bit of gentle encouragement from his dad!
