Once a Harrier League venue, the relay course largely follows the same route as used then, with the deep burn (more of a muddy slurry on Saturday, but thankfully shopping trolley free) the major obstacle.
although Phil followed Dan into the burn thanks to an off-balance Jesmond Jogger
who gave him a helping hand. There were remonstrations at the end.
In the earlier, Junior races, Abi Leiper finished 3rd in 11m 4s in the U15 girls
and James Tilley 14th (11m 34s) in the U15 boys.
