The temperture has dropped below zero and snow is begining to lie, in light of this, together with a poor local weather forecast for tomorrow morning and the advice from UKA we have decided to postpone the event.


First time in over 25 years we have had to take this action.

It was a race not a run!

Adverse Weather - UKA Advice to Endurance Events for the Weekend of the 17th -18th March 2018

The Met Office has issued yellow and amber (potential threat to life) weather warnings for much of the UK this weekend.

The real feel temperature is due to drop in many areas into single or double minus figures, with predicted strong wind speeds and to varying degrees, snow is also likely to fall.

Events that are due to take place should give serious consideration to the impact that the weather will place on the welfare of the runners, and any staff, volunteers, stewards etc. involved.

Consideration should also be given to the potential issues with transport systems, (including the ability to transfer injured or unwell participants, spectators etc. by ambulance) and the natural impact cold weather has on the workload of any receiving hospitals.

For events affected by these weather warnings we strongly suggest cancellation or postponement of your event for the benefit of everyone involved

National Cross Country Championships 2018


Report  by Clive Thornton

The National Cross Country Championships returned to its now spiritual home for the 2018 edition at Parliament Hill, Hampstead Heath in London. In a record breaking year some 6444 athletes competed on the day across 10 events. New Marske Harriers small contingent of 3 athletes braved the arctic windchill blast of weather, when running was definitely warmer than spectating.
The Parliament Hill course is famed for its hill start, a 400 metre 1 in 10 ramp which thins out the competitors in readiness for the remaining undulations, the ankle deep in parts mud bath and sometimes hard underfoot fast running ground, and generally great cross country course.
Jack Farrel was our youngest competitor competing in the under 13 boys was off first, where in field of 570 he claimed 270th in a time of 14.33 for the 3km course. Next up was Eli Barnbrook in the junior women, Eli had a terrific run where after a slight diversion for the leading runners, she came in 29th from a field of 146 in a time of 27.10 for their 6km+ course.
In the final event of the day Clive Thornton competed in the senior mens event over a 12km course, finishing 929th from a field of 2328 in a time of 53.18. Next year sees the Nationals heading north, possibly and likely to be held at Harewood House just north of Leeds, where the Northern Championships were successfully hosted earlier this year. Thats a terrific course for competitors and spectators.

Snake Lane 10 - 25/02/18


 Another great day at the popular Snake Lane 10 mile race.  Nobody got anywhere near Ricky Stevensons long time course record but Andy Pearson had a great run to pick up the 2nd v45 prize in 58:29.  A head wind in the undulating final 2 1/2 miles made it a hard finish to the race impacting on times.

New Marske dominated the ladies prizes with Sharon Bulman collecting the 1st V40 prize, Trish Speedie 1st V45 prize and Kath Aspin the 1st V50 prize.  Together they also reclaimed their trophy for 1st Ladies team that they lent out last year!.
