Kirkley Hall 10 Miler – Sunday 26 November
It was bright and sunny, with a biting wind and icy roads – the scene was set for this year’s Run Nation 10 mile race at Kirkley Hall.
The men’s race was a hard fought battle between two Gateshead Harriers. Conrad Franks was the winner in 57.09 beating his teammate Kevin Connolly.
Team Elswick was out in force with eight women taking on the undulating and slippery 10 mile course.
Jude Nutt re-claimed her winning title with a brilliant time of 1.04.38, having been the runner up in 2016 and the winner in 2015. She was three minutes clear of her closest rival on the day, Claire McManus of North Shields Poly. Third place went to a very impressive unattached runner Lindsay McGowan, who beat Andrea Banner into fourth place.
Congratulating Jude on her well-earned victory.
