On Tuesday we had some of our seniors at the NEMAA road relays led by new senior captain Wes Tarn. The ladies team of Amy Pickworth, Michaela Sowerby and Nova Tarn finished 12th in their race behind some quality female teams but we had better success in the mens race starting off with our M45 category team lead by John Clifford who put an incredible first leg in to give Simon Rogers and Colin Taylor a lead to hold on to to bring home the gold and finish 7th overall. Our second M45 team with Karl Hume, Graham ‘the champ’ Hindmarsh and Barry Talman finished 21st in a large field. Our V55 team made up from Stephen Dent, Ian Brown and Jeff Miller finished in the bronze medal position and 31st overall meaning a good collection of medals for the seniors. Well done all.

Sunday morning saw the two other Sunderland events take place, the 10km and half and we had a large turnout for both. In the 10km James Largey put in another top drawer performance to finish first Harrier home in a superb 33.06 with John Clifford finishing 1st in his age category with another superb run of 33.47 cementing his position as top V50 in the UK. We had another large turnout of Harriers predominately from our Couch 2 group, many of whom were running their first race for the club. Excellent running by you all, some good performances today.

Hayden Thompson finished in 58:43, Joanne Hammond 1:18:25, Emma Arrowsmith 1:18:12, Lauren Berwick 1:33:31, Neil Chalmers 46:43 and Kathryn Bradley 1:18:12 all ran but not registered as a Harrier at point of entry

We had four of the seniors in the Half marathon, Trevor Mitchell the first of which crossed the line in 1.46.22 ahead of Simon Daniels in 1.48.09, Lee Hammond in 1.52.48 and Laura Ripley in 2.31.30. Great work guys!

We had three of our seniors competing at the British Masters Pentathlon on Sunday at the Oxford Horspath Athletics Stadium. Only athletes over the age of 35 and are UKA registered can enter these events although overseas competitors can also participate. On the day our three pentathletes came home with some bling. Surprisingly these events are heavily supported by V50+ athletes so a great opportunity for anyone at the club over 35 to get involved and compete for medals. Well done to Andy, Sarah and Lindsey on their competition bling! More information on how to get involved can be found here
