With little significant competition on offer in the region over the weekend, Morpeth Harriers distance specialist Andrew Hebden headed for Yorkshire, and competed in the BHF Harewood House Half Marathon,
on Sunday 17th February 2019, six days ahead of him returning to the venue to compete in this weekends English National Cross Country, which is being held on the land surrounding the historic mansion.
On Sunday, Andrew finished ninth, posting a finishing time of 85m38s,
which proved to be over four minutes adrift of race winner Ciaran Forde of local club Leeds City.
Sunday saw Andrew tackling the undulating pathways within the estate,
this Saturday however it will be the rolling grassland, a different prospect altogether,
and possibly the odd bit of lovely Yorkshire Mud.
