Athlete of the Month Award for November 2016 has gone to Rory Leonard.
November 2016 proved to be an excellent month in
competition terms for Under 17 athlete Rory Leonard,
highlighted by a superb victory at the Heaton Road Races,
and near perfect performance, when running on first leg
for his club’s A team at Mansfield in the English National
Cross Country Relay Championships, which ultimately
paved the way to them finishing twelfth
of 72 competing teams in their 3 x 3k event.
These performances have resulted in Rory being awarded
with a Linden Homes Morpeth Harriers Athlete of the Month Certificate.
He is pictured above receiving this from Club Secretary Mike Bateman
at their clubhouse on Mitford Road, on the evening of Monday 19th December.
Santa certainly came early for the very talented youngster, who,
providing he can stay clear of injury problems,
will continue to have an excellent Cross Country season.
