NEHL Lambton Estate, 14th March 2020

A new venue for the NE Harrier League at Lambton Estate which, thankfully, went ahead following an earlier postponement due to flooding. Another great performance from the Claremont Ladies with a first place finish that puts them top of Division 3 with just one event to go (and a fair chance that that event will …

NEHL Alnwick, 29th February 2020

After all the recent cancellations, the cross-country season got back underway at Alnwick, even though Storm Jorge was beginning to flex its muscles. It was clear that wind was going to be a problem as we fought to keep the cars in a straight line as we drove up the A1, but at least we …

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 …

Sherman Cup & Davison Shield, 4th Jan 2020

A bright, if blustery, day for the first cross-country of 2020. Some excellent performances from those in Sky Blue – particularly Catherine Young and Sarah Kerr, 22nd and 28th respectively. Ladies Position Runner Time 22 Catherine Young 26:28 28 Sarah Kerr 26:47 75 Mandy Herworth 29:03 81 Nicki O’Brien 29:20 125 Nina Jentl 31:07 138 …

NE Cross-Country Championships, 14th December 2019

This year’s North East Cross-Country Championships took place in the beautiful setting of the meadows opposite Alnwick Castle. It was a bright, cold afternoon with a strong wind being the main difficulty facing the runners – as there were, surprisingly, only a few short muddy patches. The course was an amended version of the one …

NEHL Aykley Heads, 2rd Nov 2019

Last cross-country I heard a number of people bemoaning the lack of mud on the courses – they will certainly not be able to make the same complaint this year! I thought that no course could ever be muddier than my first experience of Thornley Hall Farm a couple of years ago, but I was …

NEHL Wrekenton, 28th September 2019

Well done to everyone for getting through the season opener. It actually looked like a decent day for running. There were some excellent performances from Harrier League debutantes and veterans alike. Position Name Time 19 Madeleine Day 28:13 27 Catherine Young 28:33 (27:18 actual) 50 Maria Duenas 29:26 67 Mandy Herworth 29:48 78 Sarah Kerr …

Farringdon Cross-Country Relays, 14th Sept 2019

We had just one team of each gender competing at Farringdon this year, but this didn’t stop us having an enjoyable day’s racing. The sun was shining, the course was dry and the famous Farringdon stream was just a trickle – so really it was just a deep ditch with a soggy bottom! I like …

Cross-country fixtures announced

The dates for the 2019-20 North East Harrier League have now been announced.

There is a 7th event – the Sherman Cup / Davison …

NEHL Alnwick Photos, 2nd March 2019

We had a lot of photographers on the course at Alnwick – so thanks to Howard, Gill, Sarah B, Tara and myself for the photos which are now on our Flickr feed: We celebrated the end of the cross-country season at Antico’s in Jesmond – photos also on Flickr:
