Saturday saw one of the Harriers’ newer members burst onto the scene with a superb performance at the Newcastle Parkrun.
Wayne Gair finished 10th in a big pb on a hot morning on the Town Moor in 18mins 19secs. No doubt there’s plenty more to come from Wayne.
Elsewhere, Stuart Carter won his age group at the St Helens Parkrun, while Mike Henry won the male 60 category at Greenock in Scotland clocking a parkrun pb.
Finally, there was a shock at Workington, where Gay Eastoe didn’t win the female 60 category.
Furthermore, the lady who beat Gay has also run off with Gay’s female 60 course record. Something to aim for then.
Results: Newcastle: 10-Wayne Gair 18.19; 158-Charlotte Baston 24.21; 159-Phil Baston 24.21.
St Helens: 10-Stuart Carter 21.03.
Greenock: 24-Mike Henry 21.46.

Last week, however, Gay did win her age category.
Saturday, July 19, also saw Wayne knock about 30 seconds off his previous best time, which was set earlier this year.
Results: Newcastle: 12-Wayner Gair 18.36.
Workington: 33-Gay Eastoe 24.44; 34-Richard Eastoe 24.44.
