On Sunday, four Junior Alnwick Harriers travelled to Gateshead to compete in the second fixture of the mini athletics series held at the Academy of Sport, Gateshead College.

The event was a very well-organised competition, inviting children from across the region to compete in hurdles, sprints, long jump, high jump and shot putt.

The day got off to a flying start with Max Breese achieving gold in the 60m hurdles.

Meanwhile, competing in the Year 5 standing long jump, Lauren Brown took the silver-medal position with a distance of 1.74m and Millie Breese just missed out on a medal to finish fourth with a distance of 1.64m.

Max’s hard work paid off to see him take home gold in all other events he competed in on the day.

The 60m sprint was the second event the Year 5 girls took part in, which saw Lauren finishing third.

Alnwick performed brilliantly in the final event of shot putt with Lauren taking the gold, Talia Thompson taking bronze and Millie finishing a close fourth position.
