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 …

NEHL Wrekenton, 28th September 2019

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:
