The first Morpeth Harriers glory of Great North Run weekend came in the 5k event,
held at Gateshead on Saturday 10th September 2016, when one of the clubs
youngest Senior athletes Sam Hancox took the Gold medal.
Hancox won in an excellent 15m29s, which gave him an eleven second
margin victory over Gateshead Harrier Jed Marshall,
with Jarrow and Hebburn’s Lee Gifford a further thirty five seconds adrift in third place.
