Between the hours of 15.30 on Thursday 21st December,
and 8.31 on Friday 22nd December 2017,
Morpeth Harrier’s Women’s endurance specialist Lorna MacDonald
completed the longest Night Run, and race of her life,
and that was to complete no less than 76 miles on foot,
comprising of roughly sixteen 4.8mile loops of a planned course
round Morpeth, in aid of Shelter, to raise awareness of homelessness,
and the health and safety aspects attached to its growing existence.
Using the Just Giving procedure, Lorna’s undoubted brave efforts,
saw her raise over £1,500, of what was originally a £500 target,
and she greatly appreciates the assistance shown by friends and fellow club colleagues,
and will quite rightly appreciate the opportunity to put her feet up over the Christmas period.
Well Done indeed Lorna, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you,
no doubt you will now know areas of the town that you were not aware of.
