North East Harrier League, Gosforth Park, 27th October 2018

It was not a promising start to the day when we woke to sleet and rain battering the windows, but the cross-country weather Gods looked down on us and brought out the sun for the afternoon.  In fact, it turned out to be a quite a pleasant day for a run around Gosforth Park.  This …

It was a good turnout with a number of cross-country debutants among the 27 strong Claremont contingent. …

NEHL Thornley Hall Farm 10th February 2018
