NEHL Herrington, 6th January 2018

Mud, glorious mud! The cross-country season had been distinctly lacking it up to now, so the weather gods decided to make up for it at Herrington Country Park today.

Alnwick Castle provided a fitting background for the final event of the 2016/17 North East Harrier League and for the Claremont Ladies to seal a well deserved promotion to Division 2.  Though heavy overnight rain meant that the course was wetter and muddier than I have known it in the past, the afternoon itself was …

NEHL Thornley Hall Farm, 11th February 2017

Now I normally enjoy our trips out to the Harrier League cross-country races.  There is the camaderie with the other Claremont team members and the banter and friendly competition with runners from other clubs.  The events have a friendly feel with non-runners offering encouragement and support.  OK, sometimes it is cold and/or wet and the …
