1939 -2020 RIP
It is with sadness that we have to report that Phil Miles, one of our long standing life members passed away on Sunday 9th August. Our thoughts are with Helen, Martin & Family.
Phil took an active part in the club and competed until 2017. Recent highlights include a Bronze medal in the British Masters Open Road Relay Championships 2010 along with Ron Sherwood and Jim Conaghan. In 2015 Phil was in the UK Top 8 75+ for 5K (7th), 10K (8th), 10m & HM (5th). With a Marathon time as a V70 of 4:19 that is some going. He will be sadly missed.

In these strange times runners have little to aim for, so we have decided to have virtual 10k run.
The main reasons for holding this event are:
It is with sadness that I have to report that Keith Bowen, one of our long standing members passed away at the weekend.
I am not sure how long Keith had been a member but it was at least 30 years. He was a very public spirited man reflected by the fact he was a Justice of the Peace. When he gave up running he continued to support the club and until quite recently would be one of the first to volunteer as a marshal at club reces.
Our thoughts are with his family.
It is with sadness that I have to report that Norah Cooney, a founding member and President of New Marske Harriers passed away late yesterday. She would have been 90 at the end of this month.
Norah was a hard working borough and parish councillor for over 40 years, and when Peter Boulton and Stan Martin got together to form the club in 1986 they turned to Norah for help and support which she gave willingly.
Once the club was up and running she became president and rarely missed an AGM - and that would only because she was on council business. There was quite a few times when I was able to turn to her for advice or assistance over the years.
She had been ill for a few months and that was the reason that she was unable to attend this years AGM.
