Nick Swinburn of Morpeth Harriers will certainly hopefully be putting cold North East winds, any thoughts of snow or wintry showers, and cold wet mud, very much behind him, when he travels out this week to Bermuda for the annual highly competitive,
and Internationally renowned 10k Road Race, taking place this Saturday 16th January 2016.
He is one of four Great Britain athletes, two Men and two Women, who will be competing for their country in an event where stars such
as the late Grete Waitz (31m41s),
and Britain’s Geoff Smith (28m14s), hold the respective Men’s and Women’s course records.
Swinburn’s Male team-mate is Jacob Allen of Rugby and Northampton AC,
and the Women are represented by Charlotte Arter of Cardiff AC and Faye Fullerton of Havering AC.
All four have won their chance of the trip, courtesy of their excellent
individual performances in November’s Leeds Abbey Dash event.
We hope to report on Nick’s achievements in the event,
in our News Update next week.
