Morpeths Ross Floyd put a somewhat disappointing run at last week’s Quayside 5k
behind him by finishing 2nd in Low Fell Running Club’s
annual Watergate 5k trail race on Thursday 31st August 2017.
After a tussle with Gateshead Harriers stalwart Conrad Franks,
Floyd finished some 4 seconds behind him in a time of 15m 50s.
Meanwhile over 60 veteran David Nicholson finished in 36th place
in a time of 19m 10s to claim a gold medal in the
North East Masters Athletics Association Championships held in conjunction with the race.
