The annual North Eastern Counties Cross Country Championships were held at
a very windy Cardinal Hume School, in Wrekenton, Gateshead on Saturday 8th December 2018.
In the Senior Women’s three lap 8k event, Morpeth’s Emma Holt clearly showed that she is back somewhere close to her best form, finishing second to Jarrow and Hebburn’s Georgia Campbell,
only losing out for Gold by a margin of thirty-six seconds.
Holt also led her club to team Silver behind Jarrow and Hebburn,
losing out for Gold by fourteen points, with Gosforth Harriers third, eight points adrift.
Assisting Holt in the Morpeth team count were Gemma Floyd (7th),
Rachelle Falloon (9th), and Vicky Gibbs (58th).
Other Morpeth performances in the field of 231 finishers were
Claire Calverley (77th), and Lesley Chapman (152nd).
