186 complete teams took part in the annual Weetslade Multi Terrain Relays,
organised by Claremont Road Runners on Wednesday 24th June 2020.
The difference in this years event is, that no one actually turned up on the night in question, and like many other events, it was held on a virtual basis, with clubs entering, and all of their entered runners having to complete an individual run over the selected distance within a certain timescale, and forwarding their performances to the event organisers.
From the results obtained, Morpeth Harriers were declared the overall winners, with Adam Pratt (12m36s), Jane Hodgson (15m03s), and Alistair Douglass (12m24s), combining to produce a seven second margin team win over second team Elswick Harriers, with the Morpeth Harriers B team securing third team placing courtesy of John Butters (13m05s), Lindsey Quinn (15m33s), and Sam Hancox (12m27s).
It was extremely sweet with Douglass and Hancox emerging as the fastest Senior Men performers overall.
This was the clubs first taste of team success since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, and although it was on a virtual basis due to current circumstances, it was nevertheless welcome.
In addition to the first and third places squads, the club had four other squads in action,
who placed 5th, 22nd, 31st, and 78th equal.
They also had an incomplete squad.
Jane Hodgson was the third fastest Veteran Female,
and John Butters was the third fastest Veteran Male.
