Event reports

ReportLast weekend saw the NESS Cross Country league make its annual trip to Ramsey for the race organised by Harwich Runners. The day saw a strong showing from the host club. The men’s team took an impressive 4 of the first 12 places. Rob Reason was the first black and white vest home in 4th place. Steve Cooper in 7th, Graeme Knott in 10th and Stephen Peck in 12th put the team in a strong position. Archie Barrington (45th) and Matthew Friend (59th) continued their good performances in this year’s series. Completing the scoring eight were Josh Newlyn making a welcome return in 49th and Simon Day in 60th. Just outside the scorers were strong supporting runs from Sam Gooding-Matthews and Charlie McCarthy. Among the 206 men running there were cross country debuts for Tony Gillies and Allan Bush. The men’s team placed 4th in the top Pool overall. 10 ladies from Harwich were among the field of 97 in that race. For the second race this series Ellie Burke was the first runner from the host club to finish taking 23rd place. Karen Stapleton and Victoria McCrea were both running their first cross country races of the season and scored for the team finishing in 35th and 38th respectively. Carrie Hook completed the scoring quartet. Also making their first appearances this series were Valentina Burley, Katie Holmes and Ann Piercy. The ladies placed 5th to give the combined team a 5th placed finish. In the junior race 104 youngsters took on the mile course. There were 3 local boys in the field. Michael Knowles was 22nd overall, Jamie Carter was 4th in the U11 category with Jack Manley making his cross country debut. For the girls both Annabel Brookes and Dalia Jaballah both had good runs in the U15 group. The week before, four runners tackled a trail half marathon. Stepehn Peck and Robin Brookes navigated their way to 13th and 14th place in a time just over 1 hour 49 minutes, just six minutes behind the winners of the race. Gina Jaballah and Jacky Lindley also worked together to complete the course in 3h 39m. Meanwhile Steve Cooper finished 4th in a 12k Cross country race at Ipswich.
