Morpeth Harriers distance athletes will be in action this Saturday 30th January at the annual Northern Athletics Cross Country Championships, which this year are being held in the North West,
at Witton Park, in Blackburn.
The ten event programme
gets underway at 11.00am,
with the first event being the Under 17 Women, who run over a distance of 4.7k.
Morpeth Harriers Senior Men are in action in the final event at 3.00pm,
which is run over a distance of 12k, the longest race of the day.
They are defending the title that they won at Pontefract twelve months ago,
however because of some key absentees;
they face an uphill task in terms of retention.
Main opposition will come from Sale Harriers, Leeds City and Stockport.
Medal possibilities for Morpeth, individually or team in other events,
could come from their Under 13 Girls, Under 15 Boys, and Under 17 Men.
