Sunday saw the penultimate race in the Borders Cross-Country taking
place at Doddington Golf Course. The race, hosted by Wooler Running
Club, took the runners over some tough terrain, which, coupled with
blustery winds, made the going quite difficult for the competitors.
Grant Noble of Dunbar came in with a time of 31:56, chased by his
clubmates Colin Menzies, 32:18 and Stuart Hay 32:35. Richard Taylor
and Anne Hay also completed the course in 36:12 and 38:20
In the junior event, Alex Noble had another good run, coming in 7th in
a time of 13:20, with Lewis Ross not far behind in 13:38 and Bruce
Lindsay putting in his 5th run of the series, finishing in 15:33.
Elliot Mullen, 16:16, Gemma Bolton, 17:36, Lucy Hall, 17:38, Cory
Smith, 17:39, Andrew Taylor, 18:14, Martin Sparksman, 18:35 and
Isabelle Taylor, 20:48, all finished strongly despite battling against
the headwind in the long stretch to the finish.
The final race is on 18th February at Norham with the presentation in
the village hall afterwards.
