ReportA good number of runners made their way down the A12 to Writtle to represent Harwich Runners at the third cross country race of the season. In the men’s race, run over a 5 mile distance, there were 18 from Harwich in a field of 177. There were some quality runners at the top end of the race with the first Harwich Runner home being Graeme Knott in a decent 8th place. Matthew Friend was next back in a good 20th only a short way ahead of Jason Meachen in 26th. Strong runs from Simon Day and Sam Gooding-Matthews set the men up for a good team showing and Richard Newman completed the scoring six in 65th. There were first time runs from Craig Manley and Gareth Jones whilst Gary Donoghue returned from injury for his first cross country in 3 years. The men were first in Pool B ahead of promotion rivals Tiptree.. For the ladies, 7 of the 90 runners were representing the black and white vest. Karen Stapleton continues to run well and was first back for Harwich in 14th place. Madeline Lewis in 28th, Helen Benham in 35th and Victoria McCrea in 45th were all part of the scoring quartet for the club. The ladies finished second on the day. Overall the combined Harwich Runners team won Pool B ahead of Tiptree on the day and now sit with a 3 point lead at the half way point of the season. There was also a Junior race run over an approximate one mile distance. For the boys, the U15 group was really strong with 9 of the top 20 overall, this included Max Stapleton in 18th. Michael Knowles also placed inside the first 20 overall running in the U17 group whilst there were some exceptional performances in the U11 category. Bertie Lewis was 3rd in that category with Charlie Newman also placed nicely in 6th. Omar Jaballah, Warren Mann and Jack Manley also represented the club well. Harwich Runners had 14 of the 97 juniors representing them. Seven girls ran with Dalia Jaballah and Daisy Ward finishing close together in 14th and 15th overall. Eleanor Newman and Harriet Dobson went well in the U13 group. The U11 category saw a good run from Eryn Lewis and a debut from Erin Reid. Of the 11 clubs, Harwich Juniors sit in a really credible 4th place. The next race in the Ellisons Solicitors Cross Country series takes place on February 9th at Colchester
