92 finishers took part in the Run, Sleep, Eat 5k Race on
Friday 27th May, and they were led home by Morpeths
Carl Avery, who was making a competitive comeback
after a short layoff with a troublesome leg injury.
There was certainly no signs of a problem for Avery,
as he got round the winding undulating course at Temple Park,
South Shields in an excellent 14m52s, which for him was a new personal best, and he won by a comfortable margin
of 21 seconds from club colleague Chris Smith,
who finished second, also in a personal best time,
and seventeen seconds ahead of third placed Sam Hancox,
also of Morpeth.
Morpeth Harriers dominance was clearly shown when Thomas Straughan came home in fourth place in 15m33s.
Adding to the club dominance was Gemma Floyd, who finished as first Woman
in 29th place overall in 18m36s, also a new personal best time.
Other Morpeth finishers were Fergus Bates and Rob Hancox,
who placed 14th and 24th overall in respective times of 16m29s, and 17m37s,
both times just slightly adrift of their personal bests.
The next race in this short series is again at Temple Park, on Friday 29th July 2016.
