The Sunderland City Runs returned over the weekend, with the 5k run starting on Saturday evening and the 10k and half marathon the following morning.
Morpeth Harrier Carl Avery was first home in the 5k in a time of 14 minutes 48 seconds, over ten seconds ahead of Tyne Bridge Harrier and training partner Finn Brodie in 15:01. Avery’s win is a fine return to form after a spell on the sidelines with injury.
The 10k was won by Ben Connor in 30:03 with Ross Floyd first home for Morpeth in 31:23. Fellow Harrier Shaun Land recorded a PB when placing 25th in a time of 37:53.

Meanwhile, Gary Jones ran a time of 35:10 to finish 17th in the Run Nation 10k at Ouston Airfield on Sunday.
