It was certainly an excellent start to the Start Fitness North Eastern Harrier League season for Morpeth Harriers & AC, when they achieved no less than four team victories, one individual win, plus three fastest times of the day, at the first fixture, held at Wrekenton on Saturday 30th September 2017.
An excellent individual victory by Emma Holt, paved the way for an
equally excellent Morpeth team victory in the Senior Women’s event.
Running from the Fast Pack, she finished a mere four seconds ahead of club colleague Jane Hodgson.
Further winning team support came courtesy of two superb runs by Alison Brown (4th) (Slow Pack),
and Lorna MacDonald (9th) (Medium Pack).
Other Morpeth performances in the Senior Women’s event, came from Gemma Floyd (21st) (Fast Pack),
who was eighth fastest overall in a 462-strong field of finishers, Jane Briggs (38th) (Slow Pack),
Lindsay Turnbull (52nd) (Slow Pack), Jane Kirby (110th) (Slow Pack),
Sue Smith (223rd) (Slow Pack), Carol Parry (262nd) (Slow Pack),
and Margaret MacDonald (340th) (Slow Pack).
This was an excellent start to the season by the Senior Women, who are now competing in Division 1.
