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 …

NEHL 6 – Alnwick Castle 02-03-19

With only the Birtley relays to go, this was the penultimate XC fixture for the juniors in the 2018-19 season. Much warmer than the previous year with the wind picking up a little for the later races, overall the conditions were very dry. The unexpected and unwelcome addition of many tonnes of hardcore to the …

NEHL 6 – Thornley 09-02-19

Farewell to the junior’s tent – Thornley Hall Farm 9-2-19. Well the forecasted 40mph winds materialised, and the tent was unable to cope with the strain. She’s served us well over the past few years, but I had to put her out of her misery when I got home. Hopefully we will have a new …

NEHL 5 – Temple Park 05-01-19

On what was can best be described as a fairly chilly but dry day, TBH juniors did their best to run off all the mince pies they consumed over the Christmas period in the Sherman cup for the boys, and the Davison Shield for the girls, at Temple Park in South Shields today (Saturday 5-1-19) …

NEHL 4 – Aykley Heads 17-11-18 (incorporating Henry Pickett’s U11 race report)

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 …

Cross Country: Temple Park

Well done to everyone who ran Cross Country at Temple Park (South Shields) on Saturday, 19 November 2016. The cold weather certainly made running a lot more pleasurable than spectating and almost freezing to the spot if you didn’t keep moving.   The U11 boys were the first to race, with Jake Moir, William Adams …

Mud, Mud Glorious Mud Race Report by Finlay Dorman On a crisp icy day with temperatures hovering around freezing, 9 juniors showed us their grit, determination and running talent.
