A relatively quiet weekend on the athletics front saw several Morpeth Harriers in competitive action at local park runs on Saturday 18th August 2018.
Currently on a family holiday in Wales, brothers Dylan and Ryan Davies took part in Newtown, Mid Wales,
and showed many locals a clean pair of heels by finishing first and third respectively.
Older brother Dylan (Under 17), was first across the finish line, posting a time of 18m21s for the 5k distance,
which was a course record for his age category.
Meanwhile Ryan also had an excellent run, posting a finishing time for third in 19m16s.
More locally in Whitley Bay, Taylor Glover of Morpeth was first over the finish line in 16m56s.
At Newbiggin by the Sea, Morpeth Harrier John Butters was second across the finish line in 17m03, and club colleague Holly Peck finished fourth as first Female finisher, posting a time of 19m28s.
Other Morpeth Harriers in prominent action at Newbiggin were young Joe Dixon (Under 13 Boy), who finished an excellent ninth in 20m33s, Over 55 Veteran Man Paul Bellingham, who was fourteenth in 20m45s, and Gordon Dixon, also Over 55 Veteran Man, and Father of Joe, who finished 23rd in 21m52s.
