Gordon Smith Relays – Wednesday 10th May

A good turnout of 4 teams represented Ponteland Runners at the Gordon Smith Relays last night.  What felt like a lovely summers night quickly turned into the usual 3.2km (or 2 miles in real money as David Levison calls it) of trying to run so fast your eye balls feel like they are popping out – brilliant fun!

As the first runners set off relay debutant Miv felt his nerves getting to him, he need not of worried running a fantastic 12:58.  There were some brilliant performances on the night, from the girls, 3 of them coming within 5 seconds of each, lead by Fiona Nicholson in 14:28.  First team home came in 26th place out of the 155 teams that entered and was led out by James Leiper with a superb time of 11:12.

A great night had by all and definitely one to mark out for next year for all club runners.  Well done to all that entered.
