Sponsored for the second consecutive year by the club’s headline sponsor Linden Homes,
Morpeth Harriers held their first races in their annual Young Athletes Road Championships,
on Lancaster Park, on the evening of Monday 19th September 2016.
It was their Under 13 athletes who got the four race programme underway,
with Dylan Davies taking the Gold Medal in the Boys race,
posting a winning time over the one and a half mile, one lap circuit, of 8m04s,
which saw him just outsprint Ben Walker to the finish line by two seconds,
with Alex Porteous taking the Bronze medal in 8m32s.
Rhiannon Hedley was an easy winner of the Girls race, posting a winning time of 9m24s.
Second place, and a Silver medal went to Mia Belton, who finished in 10m03s,
just three seconds ahead of 2015 Under 11 Girls Champion Orla Callaghan,
who now in an older age group, improved on her last years’ time by 32 seconds,
and added a Bronze medal to her collection.
