Getting a taste for Indoor competition some of our track runners headed down to Sportcity, Manchester on 20th December for a bit of pre Christmas speed work.
The 600m was first up. All three Tynedale runners lined up in Heat 2. A strong finish from Max Pearson saw him finish in third place in a time of 1:23.86 ahead of Adam Pratt in 4th place with a new PB of 1:24.16. Marginally behind Adam was Lea Stephenson in a time of 1:24.18. This result puts Max into first place in the U17 UK 600m rankings with fellow Tynedale runner Alex Wood in 5th in his first year at U17.
Adam and Lea went out again to run against Darren Towart in the 300m. The men went head to head in Heat 8. Another close race saw Lea take the honours in 37.25, from Darren in 38.45 (PB) and Adam in 39.30 (PB). Darren is now 3rd in the UK Vet 35 rankings.
