NEHL Cross Country 2019-2020

North East Harrier League Cross Country Race 1: Wrekenton Saturday 28th September 2019 After a really wet early morning, thankfully the predicted rain didn’t arrive, and despite some fairly heavy rain earlier in the week, the course was still pretty firm with a few muddy puddles if you like that sort of thing. First up …

Birtley Relays – Lord Lawson School 10-3-19

Getting to the course early and setting the tent up seemed a little pointless, as conditions were dry with no wind at all. This later proved to be a very sensible decision, as the weather got progressively worse throughout the morning, with the final U15/U17 race 3rd leg being run in driving wet snow, so …

Race Report: Walbottle Cross Country

Walbottle Cross Country Race Tuesday, 11th December 2018 Race Report by Anna Dorman Even though today wasn’t a club race, I thought it was still worth mentioning because of the big TBH appearance.

NEHL 3 – Gosforth Park 27-10-18

As TBH were co-hosting this fixture I was picked up by Morag at 7:15, and arrived at the race course in driving rain with hints of snow. For the next couple of hours, it continued to rain on and off, staying fairly cold whilst we set the course up. I’m pleased to say that come …

NEHL 2 – Druridge Bay 7-10-2018

Another great turnout by TBH juniors, with some great efforts (especially from those new to XC) particularly considering the junior races got the worst of the weather today. The light drizzle turned a little heavier, being accompanied by a bit of wind bringing the temperature down just in time for the star of the U11 …

TBH Junior success at first NEHL fixture – Wrekenton

Very dry conditions led to much bemoaning about poor choice of footwear at this fixture. Apparently spikes were not conducive to the condition of the terrain (particularly not the 15mms that some of them had in), but despite this, there were some great performances by our junior section. I was going to award athlete of …
