News Roundup

Club Secretary and Welsh international Mark Baker was invited to represent the Celtic team v England in the Birmingham 10km on 26 May 2019, running in the MV50 age group. He also has invitations to represent the Celtic team V50 at two further events, the Maidenhead half-marathon on 1 September and the York marathon on 20 October.

The Celtic team includes Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, so Mark will be proudly wearing his Wales vest.

Mark last represented Wales ten years ago in the 100km Anglo-Celtic-Plate event held in Galway in 2009, where he was 4th Welsh finisher in a time of 10h:38m.

John Pollard was invited by Welsh triathlon to represent them at the British Championships in Nottingham on 15 June in the 60 to 64 age group.


After getting the bug and taking up triathlon only 5 years ago Anita Howe has competed for the GB team in her age group since 2015. Although a Northbrook member, work commitments and a heavy training schedule with the DO3 squad means she's not often seen at the Wednesday session but she runs in the club colours when she can.

In May Anita won her age group and became National English Champion, finishing 3rd overall. Competing in Weert, Netherlands in June Anita won in her age group and became European Champion.

Continuing high level of interest in the Summer Handicap series led to 97 members and guests taking part in Race 4 on Wednesday 3 July.
Steve Simpson was first home for Northbrook and so won maximum points in the men's race. Becky Colbourne finished next to become top scorer for the women.
Results will be posted here soon.

Wednesday 17 July
The Club's annual tussle with the brambles and nettles that may lie in wait along the 9k off-road route between Hampton-in-Arden and Tile Hill is a popular event that adds a bit of interest to a Wednesday night's summer training.
You travel by train to the start point and then race your clubmates back to the finish. Meet at Tile Hill Station at around 7pm in time to catch the London Midland 7.15pm-ish train to Hampton in Arden.

The Club's annual GBU relay race on 19 June saw another big turnout with 93 members and guests taking part in a relay race for teams of 3 people of differing running abilities. Due to last-minute drop-outs the Northbrook super-computer was tasked with making some just-in-time adjustments to the make up of the thirty-one 3-person teams.

The winning team was presented with a bottle of wine each, and there were prizes for the 2nd and 3rd teams.

There is more info on the GBU page.
