Posting a finishing time of 51m44s,
Morpeth Harrier Ady Whitwam finished 23rd in a top class field that assembled for the Morrisons sponsored Great South 10 Mile Run
in Portsmouth, on Sunday 25th October 2015.
It was a brand new personal best for the Shropshire based Army Major, whose previous best at the distance had been 52m52s,
which he had set in December 2014
at Bloxwich in the Sneyd Striders Christmas Pudding event.
Running very even paced throughout, Whitwam was tenth Briton
in a field which included the younger Ryan McLeod of Tipton Harriers, formerly with Elswick Harriers, who finished 13th in 48m20s.
Whitwam was also the first Over 35 Male finisher,
which pleased him immensely, and he feels that
he is in the right level of form as the major winter championships loom,
including the Masters Home International in Dublin next month.
Mongolian International Serod Batochir of Morpeth Harriers, finished third in the prestigious annual Osaka Marathon in Japan on Sunday 25th October 2015.
Running in a very talented line-up, he clocked a finishing time of 2hrs15mins35secs behind Kenyan winner Daniel Kosgei, who posted a winning time of 2hrs13mins46secs.
Batochir was very unfortunate not to get second place, only losing out by a mere three seconds to
Japanese favourite Ito Taiga in the final run in.
A personal best time of 71m55s gave
Morpeth Harrier Karl Taylor
his second Half Marathon win
in a month on Sunday 25th October 2015.
He won the Run Northumberland Castles event
at Bamburgh by a clear six minutes over his closest rival.
Girl’s course record holder Holly Peck of Morpeth Harriers finished third
overall in Sunday’s Whitley Bay 2k Park Run on Sunday 25th October.
She was first girl home in a time of 7m33s, which was twelve seconds adrift of her record.
Other Morpeth Harriers in action in the event were Garrett siblings Reece and Lauren.
Reece finished tenth overall in 8m55s, which was fifteen seconds outside of his best time on the course.
Lauren however set new figures of 9m59s, when finishing 25th overall, and was ninth Girl finisher.
