Whilst an under-strength Morpeth Harriers Senior Men came away empty handed
from the Northern Athletics 12 Stage Road Relays at Blackpool,
one young man from the club was certainly smiling, and that was Rory Leonard,
as he took a much-prized individual Bronze medal in the Under 17 Men’s 5k event,
which preceded the main event, and was a new Northern Athletics Championship,
which they hope will have a renewal in 2018.
Leonard is pictured below showing off his treasured medal at Morpeth
Harriers clubhouse on the evening of Monday 27th March 2017.
