NEHL Alnwick, 5th March 2022

Though there was a bit of a chilly breeze, we couldn’t have asked for better weather to finish the North Eastern Harrier League season at Alnwick. Blue skies with just a few fluffy white clouds added to the perfect backdrop provided by Alnwick Castle at this most picturesque of cross-country venues. Most of the course …

Sherman Cup / Davison Shield, 12th February 2022

Though part of the North Eastern Harrier League season, this is a stand-alone event with prizes being awarded to the club that achieves the best results over all the categories from juniors to veterans (Sherman Cup for the men, Davison Shield for the ladies). Unlike the Harrier League, there are separate categories in the main …

NEHL Thornley Hall Farm, 8th January 2022

Mud, glorious mud … Thornley Hall Farm has a reputation as a muddy course, and it certainly didn’t disappoint this year! The melting of the recent snow and ice, combined with overnight and morning rain meant the going could definitely be described as “soft”, if not “heavy”. First out in sky blue was Grace Scott …

NEHL Lambton, 30th October 2021

It was an interesting and varied day at the latest NE Harrier League at Lambton. First variable was the weather. We left Jesmond Metro in a monsoon and some pretty awful driving condition, but by the time we were making the return journey, it was bright sunshine causing the problems for driving. Second variable was …

NEHL Druridge Bay, 10th October 2021

It was another unseasonably warm afternoon for cross-country, with sun cream once again the order of the day. Each cross-country venue has its own character and Druridge Bay Country Park makes for a nice setting but an unusual course. The start and finish areas are on very uneven fields, there are no real hills just …

NEHL Trophy Presentation, 30th September 2021

It has been a long wait, but last night the prize giving ceremony for the 2019/20 North Eastern Harrier League took place at Start Fitness in Newcastle city centre. Sarah Kerr and Catherine Young represented the club at the event and collected the 3rd Division championship trophy on behalf of our successful ladies team. Sarah …

NEHL Wrekenton, 25th September 2021

It was cross-country, Jim, but not as we know it! ** Instead of spikes, mud, wellies, coats and bobble hats, it was road shoes, sun-cream and shades for the start of the 2021 North Eastern Harrier League season at Wrekenton! The ground was dry and rock-hard; the long, cut grass at the start and finish …

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 …

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 …
