ANGEL VIEW RUN
Low Fell, Gateshead, Tyne & Wear
Oliver James was a convincing winner of this evening race, which this year was part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of the erection of the Angel of the North.
In the sunny conditions with temperatures higher than usual for the time of day, James on vacation from his American University, was joined in the early stages by Kurt Heron, with James Dunce close behind. James dropped his main rival shortly after the 3km point, pulling away to a 44secs victory at the finish line. Heron took second place ahead of Dunce, with teenager Will Bellamy finishing in 4th place. Houghton youngsters occupied places 4 to 7 and easily won the team event. Keith Smith in 11th position was the leading veteran (M40+) athlete.
Veterans did dominate the Womens' race with Kathryn Stevenson finishing in 22nd position overall, coming home 36secs ahead of Lisa Short. Lucy Turzynski and Laura Irving occupied the next two places to back up the winner, ensuring an easy team victory for Tyne Bridge.
