NEHL – East Cramlington Nature Reserve

Saturday 8th October 2011

The cross country season started with a dry day, good conditions underfoot and a good performance from the Claremont Ladies, with Megan Murdoch having a particularly impressive run.  Running from the medium pack, Megan came home in 7th position recording the 6th fastest time.   Unfortunately for Megan this means a promotion to the fast pack for future races.  She was ably supported by a solid debut from the aptly named Joanna Speedie,and a welcome return from Tanja Cooper.

Unfortunately it was a disappointing day for the men as we failed to field a complete team and so start the season at the bottom of the table.  Only 5 runners turned up and all of those were over 50.  Still us “gadgies” did our best and got around in fairly respectable times, led home by Alasdair Wilson-Craw.
