A total of 13 Alnwick Harriers completed the latest of the 2016 Alnwick Harriers Grand Prix races, the Clive Cookson 10k, which was hosted by North Shields Poly AC.

The course is a two-lap loop, mainly on roads, though with some gravelly bridlepaths thrown in.

The first and fourth miles are a steady drag uphill, the latter of which is particularly tough as runners approach the finish.

There were some great PB performances by the runners, including first Harrier to finish Dominic Harris.

Dom shaved a few more seconds off his previous 10k best, bettering his Blyth 10k time last month by six seconds.

Terry Fountain was next home in a fraction over 39 minutes, whilst Tim Falconer impressed once again and knocked two seconds off his PB.

For the ladies there was a great battle throughout between Lisa Williams and Angie Embleton, with Lisa finishing four seconds ahead.

Justine Norman also ran well, whilst Laura McLean (Jr) achieved a 10k PB.
