Saturday saw upcoming youngster Chris Perkins and Katie Francis take on the Cross Challenge at Milton Keynes, an event in which only a select few from our club have competed over the last few years, including current members Lydia Turner, Adrian Bailes and Sophie Burnett. Katie ran very well in a strong field, finishing in 11th place, while Chris not only took on the challenge, but managed an outright win in the U15 race - congratulations to both athletes on some great runing!
Sunday was, of course, Remembrance Sunday, and following the traditional minute's silence at 11am, lots of Birtley athletes competed in the popular Heaton Memorial 10k. As well as lots of PBs for the individual athletes, the men's team came 2nd overall in what is a very competitive race - well done to all who ran. Results will be linked on our results page as soon as they are available.
