Cast your mind back a couple of weeks to the White Rose 30 ultra-marathon where Corinne Murray was the sole Harrier on show on the day. Corinne had a great run finishing 51st place in 5 hours 50 and 30 seconds. Long day Corinne, hope you took a pack lunch! Well done.
Last Saturday saw the 2nd cross country race at Foxrush, Hartlepool.Team Results are now published which saw the ladies finish in 6th place and the men 2nd with some very strong performances including 1st and 3rd place.
Staying with the subject of cross country, this week club runner Jade Hutchinson won her cross country 5k race at college against the other North East colleges which means she has qualified for the nationals.Well done Jade, another tremendous achievement.
