Thank you to Jan, Ken and Claire for the words and photos. As the cross country season is drawing to an end it came in like a lamb and went out like a lion, with roaring winds, sleet and rain. The last local cross country of the season was a relay event held on the 10th March at Lord Lawson school, Birtley. The race is in its 3rd year and growing in popularity. Another successful day for Elswick Juniors.
This a very well organised event hosted by Birtley Harriers.
