222 finishers took part in the annual Angus Tait Memorial Hexham Hobble
Multi Terrain Race on Sunday 2nd December 2018, run over one of the toughest courses
of its kind on Hexham Common, starting and finishing in Allendale, and organised by Allen Valley Striders.
Amongst those finishers were five runners from Morpeth Harriers.
First home from the club was Emma Holt, who finished in 20th place, and was first Woman home.
She posted a finishing time of 77m05s.
Four places behind her and posting a time of 78m36s was Mark Snowball,
who is very much in the early stages of a comeback after several weeks of illness.
Next home from the club was Paul Banks, who was two places behind
Mark in 26th spot, posting a time of 78m41s, and was seventh Over 40 Man.
Les Cavill was next home for Morpeth, finishing 124th overall,
posting a time of 95m52s, and he was sixth Over 60 Veteran Man.
Completing the Morpeth contingent was Gwenda Cavill, wife of Les,
who finished 139th overall, and was third Over 50 Woman,
posting a finishing time of 99m00s.
Although this event always proves to be tough, it still draws a good deal
of enthusiastic support on each occasion, and the number of finishers this time,
proved it to be no exception.
Well Done to the organisers.
