Birtley Cross-Country Relays, 19th Jan 2020

This was the second year that Birtley AC have hosted the winter cross-country relay, taking over the mantle of the Durham Cathedral Relays. They have created an interesting and challenging 3K course of 2 laps that make the most of the grounds (and particularly the hills) at Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy.

We had 8 teams in Sky Blue on this beautifully sunny, though cold, morning – 3 in the veterans’ men’s race, 4 in the ladies’ race and 1 in the senior men’s race (thanks to Dean O’Brien and Dave Wotton for running with the young lads). There were some excellent performances with the girls leading the way (as ever!).
