Four Morpeth Harriers were in competitive action at Sunday’s annual Tartan Games, organised by Gateshead Harriers, and held at Gateshead Stadium.

She also threw 16.61m in the Javelin, finishing ninth overall, and was second Veteran Woman.
Although she could only finish second, Morpeth Under 20 Woman Charlotte Earl managed a best of 4.81m in the Long Jump, improving her best by 3cm.
On the track, although he only finished second in the combined Under 13/Under 15 Boys Mile, Morpeth’s Elliot Mavir took the Under 15 Boys title, posting a time of 5m32.50s, in his first ever attempt at the distance.
