Double North Eastern Counties Champion James Young clearly showed that he is still in fine form, and has the required zest for regular competition, as he set new figures for 800m, in the Regional BMC Meeting,
held at Leeds Becket University, on the evening of Monday 2nd July 2018.
The Under 23 Morpeth Harrier, posted a time of 1m52.20s, taking a small fraction of the time that he had set at May’s University Championships at Bedford, winning by just over a second from Leeds City’s Ethan Hussey.
Another Morpeth Harrier in action at the meeting was Phillip Winkler, who finished second in the Mile event behind Blackheath’s James Habergham, posting a finishing time of 4m31.74s,
in what was his first ever attempt at the distance
