A warm clear night provided the perfect backdrop for the Newburn River run this year. Ponteland Runners had 8 runners in the race, (plus a few second claim members) including regulars from Monday and Thursday club sessions so a great opportunity for some from the club to meet each other.
Jon Parkin & Mark Lyon came in with very close performances for the Men, followed by Joanne Brown (Right) and Eva Lowther for the ladies. We also had good performances from David Buffham, Paul Holborow ( First race as a Ponteland Runner ), Sue Heppell, Fiona Harker and Nikki Morrow ( Photos below ) from the Thursday morning sessions. Great to see a good turnout from Ponteland at a race which continues to prove popular. Again our thanks go to Elswick Harriers for running an excellent race. Next is the Weetslade relay next Wednesday with Ponteland having 2 teams entered as we did last year.
