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.

Wrapping up the 2019 season eighty members and guests turned out for the final handicap race on 4 September.

First home was Becky Colbourne in her second race win of the season, adding 30 points to her series total. Rick Wise in 3rd place gained the maximum 50 points by being first Northbrook man to cross the line.

Participation this season has been at an all-time high, with 145 members and 43 guests taking part across the six races, with a total of 107 in Race 1.

After 5 races Pia Singh had an 11-point lead at the top of the women's table, ahead of Lottie Graham in 2nd place and Kelly Parker and Martina McConville in joint 3rd.

In the men's table Tom Dempsey had established a 13-point lead over David Mills in 2nd place. The results of the final race on 4 September and the overall series results will be posted here soon.

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.
This years staging held on 17 July saw a record 79 members and guests attempting the challenge, and so far there are no reports of anyone still out there.

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.
