Whats going on...

Well further to comments at the AGM I'm having a play to try and make this page more of a current news "what's going on" for Harwich Runners. So far I've added a Twitter feed & facebook is sitting in the background. A short version of the events calendar is on its way....

ReportLast weekend 283 adults and 107 juniors turned up at Gosfield for the opening meeting in the latest cross country series. Harwich were looking for an immediate return to Pool A having dropped down a level last season. The ladies started well; Madeline Lewis was 10th overall with Karen Stapleton not too far behind in 16th. Completing the scoring trio was Claire Bransby and this team did enough to win the ladies category in Pool B. There was a strong run from Victoria McCrea whilst Nicola Ward, Alison Evans and Muriel Lovering all completed their first cross country for the club. The men’s team was missing a few numbers but those who ran performed well. Simon Day was the first black and white vest home in 42nd, just 3 places ahead of Sam Gooding -Matthews. Charlie McCarthy, Mark Higgs and Ben Hammond all scored points for the team as did Andrew Wiliamson. There were good runs from Phil Sanderson and Trevor Lewis with Richard Beevor completing his first cross country in Harwich colours. This team of six placed 4th in their pool but the combined team effort leaves Harwich in 3rd after the first race. There was a healthy contingent of juniors from Harwich running their one mile race. Dalia Jaballah was 8th girl overall and 4th in the FU15 category; Daisy Ward also placed well in this group. Eleanor Newman went really well in the FU13 age group, finishing 20th overall out of the 56 girls. There were also strong runs in the FU11 category by Jemima Garner, Eryn Lewis, Sophie Cripps and Isabella Ward. For the boys, Max Stapleton was Harwich’s highest finisher in 24th. Bertie Lewis also ran in the MU15 group. There was a Harwich winner in the MU11 category with Charlie Newman finishing first. Warren Mann and Omar Jaballah were also really well placed in this category with others appearing including Harry Tyrell and Harry Almond
