Barnie Memorial 5k

The annual "Barney" 5k is run in tribute to Mike Barnsdale, the former Nene Valley Harriers Chairman, GB triathlete and England Master cross country runner right up until he lost his battle with skin cancer at the age of 56. As is fitting for one of the fathers of local athletics the event once again attracted a quality field with Aaron Scott of Lincs Wellington first man home in 15:13 and Rachael Doherty first lady in 17:14. GRC's Catherine Payne was the first local runner in picking up the prize for first in the age group with a time of 20:31, which was a PB, followed by teammate Robert McArdle, not quite at his best, in a time of 22:28.
