An event that went under the radar last week was the North Eastern Indoor Open at the National Institute of Sport which is located in Sheffield. Only a handful of club members made the southbound trip to compete. In the 11th heat of the 300m Karl posted a time of 39.79 seconds to finish 1st as well as finishing 3rd in heat 5 of the 600m after finishing in a time of 1:33.29.
In Heat 13 of the 300m Libby Hammond finished 5th in 45.32, Jess Sweet 48.48 in heat 14 for 6th and Amy Pickworth 5th in heat 17 in a time of 50.64. Amy also competed in the 600m finishing in 1:55.08 for 2nd place.
In heat 14 of the 60m race it was Andy Harrison who took top honours finishing in 7.97 seconds while in heat 17 Tom Addison was the first of our 4 Harriers across the line finishing 2nd in 8.32sec ahead of Krista Bissett-Brown who finished just 0.07 behind Tom for 3rd and only 0.01 seconds ahead of Jess Sweet for 4th. Libby Hammond finished 7th in this heat in 8.70, only 0.41 secs between first and last.
In the Long Jump it was Fluer Liddle with the longest leap of our 2 athletes with a 3.25m one place ahead of Jess Sweet with a 2.32m effort. Krista and Fleur were back in action in the shot put throwing a days best of 6.66m and 5.21m respectively which was good enough for 6th and 8th. Andy Harrison leap 1.47m in the high jump which was good enough for 8th in the competition.

Sadly this year’s McTaggart Trot had to be cancelled due to black ice around the course which made it impossible for the race to go ahead for health and safety reasons. The organisers wanted to say thank you to everyone who have donated their run fee for this amazing charity, only one refund request was received so the charity still benefits despite the run not being able to go ahead. Hopefully this one can be back on next year as it’s a much loved event which has taken place for 16 years now.
