Morpeth Harriers Senior Men compete in what is their biggest ever club event this Sunday 7th February 2016 in Kastamonu in Northern Turkey, on the edge of the Black Sea.
They will be representing Great Britain in the European Champion Clubs Cup Cross Country Championship, which is being held on the Kadidagi Plateau, which sits on an altitude of 1100m.
Carl Avery, Ross Floyd, Lewis Timmins, Ady Whitwam,
Thomas Straughan and Sam Hancox will be the
Morpeth Harriers team in action,
with Club President Jim Alder going
along as their Team Manager for the event.
The squad travel to Istanbul on Friday, and they will head
back to England next Tuesday after the event.
Morpeth Harriers would like to thank all those who have backed
them financially for the trip, and also thanks to Terry Lonergan of The Complete Runner
for the provision of Track Suits and Club Vests for the occasion.
Action gets underway in Turkey at 12.50 (Turkish Time) on Sunday,
where they will compete over a seven lap 10k course.
We will be reporting on this event on the website
and we wish the squad all our best,
and hope that they have success,
and make their nation proud.
