Morpeth 10k

[Wed 4th Jul 2010]  There were 307 finishers in the annual Morpeth 10k hosted by Morpeth Harriers on Tuesday 3rd August, of which 33 were members of Blyth Running Club.  This was the 7th race in the clubs Grand Prix series for 2010 and the last race in the short category, only two more to go both being ten milers.

The normal registration venue of Craik Park had been changed to the disabled riding centre next to the start of the race, this caused some confusion for the later arrivals who had to rush to collect their numbers on time.

First back for Blyth was Peter in 15th overall with a time of 35:47, followed by Gareth with 39:23 in 49th place.  Peters victory puts him level on points with Robbie at the top of division 1.  First lady back was Heather Christopher, 128th overall in 43:54, followed by Cath in 169th with 45:58.  Julie continued her winning streak in division 4 and also posted a 10k pb, and in division 5, Phillippa maintained her record of winning every Grand Prix this tear.

The Blyth results and the Grand Prix tables can be found in the Grand Prix section of the web site.
