Ultra North, 3rd October 2020

Fancy a socially distanced Ultra Marathon? Me neither, but I have a strange admiration for those that do!

It was Maria’s first ever Ultra and she sends this report: “Last Saturday, I attempted my first …

End of XC Season Celebration, 4th April 2020

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.

NEHL Alnwick, 29th February 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.
