The first ever Start Fitness North Eastern Harrier League
to be held at Druridge Bay Country Park in Northumberland,
on Saturday 28th November 2015 will certainly be a memorable one,
both in terms of conditions, which could easily be described as
soft and very muddy underfoot, and for organisation,
which in the main was excellently carried out by Blyth Running Club,
who despite a couple of on the day mishaps,
emerged with a great deal of well earned credit.
What they could not make to order however was the weather,
which ranged from strong winds, squally showers,
which in turn worsened the already damp underfoot conditions
to almost swamp-like at the culmination of the ten event programme.
In the Senior Women’s 6.2k event, Morpeth Harriers finished
as fifth team in Division 2 behind Wallsend Harriers.
Scoring counts came from Gemma Floyd (4th) (Slow Pack),
Catriona MacDonald (27th) (Medium Pack),
Gwenda Cavill (124th) (Slow Pack),
and Jane Briggs (152nd) (Medium Pack).
Also competing for Morpeth Harriers in the Senior Women’s event
were Shuna Rank (154th) (Slow Pack), and Sue Smith (187th) (Slow Pack).
