Junior Club Handicap 2012

[Sat 28th Apr 2012] 


The conditions for this year's Junior handicap held on Monday 23rd April were bright and breezy, with a cold northerly wind for the youngsters to run into for the final mile. The race was preceeded by a small presentation of T-shirts and certificates to the Juniors who had represented Northumberland at the County Sportshall Final at Sunderland earlier in the year.

With over 40 Juniors, ranges ranging from 7 – 17 taking part the start could be described as “organised chaos” without the organisation, the first group were soon away and from then on it was a steady stream until Jake and Chris were the last runners off, with the majority ignoring Kevin's instruction to “take it easy at the start”. The race was won by newcomer Josh Fiddaman, who steadily worked his way through the runners to build up a commanding lead. Finishing second was Ellen Keenan who just beat Natalya in a sprint finish, although Natalya was awarded second position as Ellen hasn’t joined the club yet and was running as a guest. This meant that Connor Marshall was awarded the trophy for third place.

Jake Jansen finished in 8th position and set a new course record of 10:59 for the two mile distance, Charlie was the fastest girl with a time of 13:02.
