Pont Runners do Cross Country, At blowy Druridge Bay,
Jon Parkin pitched the tent with pride, Gateshead’s blew away!
What would the terrain be like? Tough beyond good reason!
U11 girls ran first, Abigail, Freya & Nina,
Finished high up in the field, Faster, stronger, leaner!
U15 Boys were next, Fin our sole Pont vest,
Third run of this season, But definitely his best!
Spikes on tight and numbers pinned, Just time for one last ‘selfie’!
They ran with pace, they ran with power, Two tough laps to endure,
And finished with exhaustion, That only cake can cure!
And finally the senior men, ‘Bang’, and off we charge,
Mud is flying everywhere, So ‘elbows out’ and barge!
Three gruelling laps of sticky mud, Always thick and slippy!
And so to the sprint finish, Cheered on by voice and bell,
The girls’ support was brilliant, They brought us home so well!
And now the best bit to enjoy, Sweet cake and savoury pastry,
We survived the brutal weather, With horizontal rain,
The Town Moor for the next one, To do it all again!
