Sherman Cup & Davison Shield


This has kindly been covered by a new fixture hosted by Gateshead Harriers, to be held at Hedley Farm West, Opposite Tanfield Railway, NE16 5EQ, on the 28th of September. I must also thank both Sunderland Strollers and Tynebridge Harriers who came forward offering to host the fixture!


As per normal this is a 'scratch' race, with no handicaps. Veterans will be competing in with the senior men's and ladies races, but with their own finishing positions i.e. 1st vet, 2nd vet etc rather than overall finishing position. Veterans in the Harrier league are still 35 for the ladies and 40 for the men. You are NOT allowed to drop down a category and compete as a senior.


As soon as we have online entries open we'll post a link so that clubs can get all of their athletes entered.


This season we're using the following colours for the numbers:


1 - 1200 on red for women

1 - 2000 on blue for men

1 - 1200 on green for juniors (boys and girls)

1 250 on orange for U11s (boys and girls)


You keep your number for the whole season including the Davision Shield & Sherman Cup. Do not throw it out after the first fixture.


This year, if you run in the wrong number i.e. a number from another race, you will be disqualified. Remember if you're a bloke, and you're wearing an orange number instead of a blue one, chances are you'll be disqualified. Same goes for ladies etc. There are no white numbers this year this should reduce the chances of you picking up the wrong race number. If you're not sure what your number is, please ask your team captain, or come to registration and check with us.
