Old Monks 6 Multi-Terrain Race, Sunday 9th January 2011

Andy Minister has just proved he is Burn Road’s top man by finishing in 5th place (33.00) in the Old Monks 6 mile multi-terrain race from Hart village.  He kept his feet firmly on the ground in slippy conditions, this performance was all the more impressive due to his hard race at the NE XC championships the previous day and he had sunk a few beers to celebrate his return to fitness.


North Eastern Cross Country Championship 8th January 2011

Temple Park at South Shields was the venue of the 105th running of the North Eastern Cross Country championships on Saturday 8th January 2011 with approx 700 runners competing over all events.

The senior men’s race was won by Lewis Timmins of Morpeth Harriers in a time of 39.34 and the senior women’s race first lady was Kirsty Legg of Middlesbrough AC (Mandale).


Andy Minister led the club around the undulating and sometimes heavy going course and felt right at home mixing it with the top athletes from Sunderland, Morpeth and Chester le Street to name but a few clubs.


Captain Cooks Fell Race 1st January 2011

A right motley crew of Hartlepool Burn Road Harriers turned up to do this New Years Day race from Great Ayton, you can see the state of some of them before the race posing for website photo, you should have seen them after!!!!!


It has become a tradition for some hardy club members to tackle this tough little fell race.  The course is a two and half mile struggle uphill with a single track through the forest where you need to use your hands to push your knees to keep moving upwards.  Then once at the top of Captain Cook’s monument the course winds its way downwards back to Great Ayton if you stay on right path, via moor, track, road and fields. 


Guisborough Woods Race 27th December 2010

This race has long been a favourite of a certain section of HBR athletes; it is not for the faint hearted.

Five of our squad entered although one namely Andy Minister turned up disguised as a Durham fell runner, those in proper vests were the three Daves - Edwards, Lake, Kirk and Karl Edwards . Every part of the 3-lap course was covered in approx 6” of soft snow, which looked brilliant, but proved a bit demanding on the old legs. After discussing race tactics and injuries (excuses) we headed to the start just below the tree line in G,boro woods.
