START FITNESS NORTH EASTERN HARRIER LEAGUE
Druridge Bay Country Park, Northumberland
Morpeth Harriers moved to the top of the Senior Mens' Division 1 table after the second fixture at a damp and cold Druridge Bay Country Park. North Shields Poly still lead in the equivalent Womens' competition.
Luke Pickering easily won the Senior Mens' race from Jevan Robertson, with fast pack runner, Sam Hancox moving up to sixth with the day's quickest time. Hancox had 24 hours earlier ran the first leg for Morpeth's 6 stage Relay team at Sutton Park. Richard Johnson was Morpeth's first counter in 5th position.
Danielle Hodgkinson running from the slow pack, outclassed the opposition to win the Senior Womens' race by a massive 2mins 32secs from Kharis Taylor. Not surprisingly Hodgkinson was fastest overall. Heaton won the Division 1 team competition from South Shields.
Henry Johnson easily won the U17 race though the fastest time went to Daniel Melling, who moved through to 6th position. Holly Peck, who won the opening race from the slow pack, this time gained victory from the Medium pack in the Junior Womens' race. Rhian Purves was the quickest moving through to 4th position.
Chris Perkins won the U15 Boys race and was fastest overall. Ines Curran was fastest in the U15 Girls race finishing in 4th place behind Shenali Scott.
Freya Clarkson and Tom Slane both gained victories from the fast pack in the U13 age-group. Zac Brannon and Poppy Wilde repeated their Meeting 1 victories in the non-scoring U11 races.
