There were over 400 finishers at the Clive Cookson 10k on Wednesday 15th May 2019.
The race was hosted as usual by North Shields Poly, over the traditional two lap course from
Monkseaton High School, although if anything the even hotter evening mitigated against pbs.
Gus Withers of Gateshead Harriers was 1st male home in 32m 11s
and Birtley’s Tracey Millmore 1st female in 37m 55s.
Some four Morpeth athletes took part, with Tom Innes having another fine run to come in in 7th place in a time of 34m dead. In his first outing back in a Morpeth vest, Gary Jones, now an O/35 veteran, ran 35m 59s in 19th place.
Eric Adams (who had the unenviable distinction of having to carry the number ‘1’ bib) was 124th in 42m 28s
and Jim Alder ‘the younger’, at last on the comeback trail, 6th O/55 and 140th in 42m 49s.
