Great turnout and result, as always, by the women, and…a good attempt by the Macs to represent the men. I’m told by Nina that this was a brutal course and “proper” cross country. Judging by her photos (below), you should all be proud of yourselves. Bunch of masochists…

What started as a bitterly cold day had turned into a beautiful sunny afternoon that, whilst still a bit nippy, was perfect for cross-country. The course has plenty of stretches on the flat but there is a hilly section with 4 or 5 short climbs – just enough to make it feel like a true cross-country challenge. It was in surprisingly good condition considering the recent rain with only a few muddy patches.

The small Claremont contingent enjoyed a good day’s running and did our best to keep the sky blue flag flying (we even had a functioning tent!). The senior ladies team of Robyn, Rose and Sophie came a very creditable 9th, although I don’t think any of them even saw Laura Weightman – Morpeth’s Olympian was miles clear of the field! The Ladies vets team of Sarah, Julie and Alice came 19th (there were a lot more veteran than senior teams).

Unfortunately we didn’t have a men’s team at all with only David Lydall and myself running. Bill Milbourne ran as an over 65 but had to withdraw part way around with a back injury.

Halloween turned out to be a fine, dry night for a run along the banks of the Tyne to Scotswood Road and back. This may have been why we had an excellent turnout of 45 runners – or it may just be that they were avoiding the trick or treaters.

It turned out to be a treat for Jane Evans who fooled the handicapper to walk away with victory in her first ever handicap appearance. Guest Laurie Campbell finished second, comfortably clear of Kenny McCormick in 3rd place, who himself was well clear of the pack.

The Autumn cup final was contested between Sarah Bowen, Rose Hawkswood, Dave Kear and Chris Jones. Sarah took the shield home, narrowly beating Dave and Rose by 7 and 9 seconds respectively. Having run the Town Moor marathon the day before, Chris was understandably a bit further back!

There were some excellent times posted – Jonny Evans was quickest in 22:40 followed by Jonathan Gilroy on 23:43 and guest Stephen Barker in 24:07. (The handicapper admits that he was a bit harsh on the fast lads which is why none of them featured in the top 10. They should be much better placed next time out).

Fastest leader on the night was cup winner Sarah Bowen in a time of 28:27. Rose Hawkswood was second fastest in 28:56, while handicap debutant Sophie Lamb recorded a time of 29:07.

Full results can be found here.
