Once again we have been invited to participate in the flower festival, where New Marske Harriers have had a long standing connection with the church , by using the facilities that the church hall offers twice weekly to the club.
It’s a ten year anniversary celebration, where the club have a window flower display along with many other local groups in the community also displaying their ideas. Based on “Seasons”
The displays will be on show from 6pm Friday evening before a 7.30pm service; tickets are available for the service at £3.00 per person , wine included, with the local Brass Ensemble being part of it.
Display opens the following day, from 9am onwards, where refreshments and raffle will be available in the church hall, & the same applies Sunday until 4 pm close. Please find time to pop along and support the festivities and enjoy the flowers!!

NYMAC 1 Mile Relays - 31/05/18
Another great evening at the sell out NYMAC 1 mile relays at Stewart Park. Despite some late injuries New Marske managed to field 7 teams with everybody enjoying the run (once they had recovered!). Close races in both the F160 and M200 categories with the ladies clinching the victory from Darlington Harriers on the final leg just 1 second outside the course record. Only a 5 minute mile on the final leg from NYMACS Paul Lowe denied the M200 team 1st place and they came a creditable 2nd only 8 seconds outside the M200 course record.
Well done to our Members of the month for April - Allan Wilson & Charlie Jefferson
Allan recently set new PB's for 10 mile, 10k, 5 miles and 5k. Charlie has concentrated on Javelin throwing, and his determination to keep improving his technique is paying off. He recently improved on his PB to get 47.36m, breaking the NEYDL competition record. He has recently started throwing, the discus and hammer. We will see how this develops in the months and years to come.
Anybody who has not received
their Member of the Month T-Shirt or Beanie please contact David Aspin
Remember, any member/parent/coach can nominate a senior or junior each month. It will allow the club to recognise achievements that are not necessarily catered for by our existing award structure. It could be for competing or volunteering. Preference will usually be to those where the event has taken place within the month and who are unlikely to win one of the club's annual awards - but this will depend the strength of each month's nominations. Members can now be renominated 2 years after they last won it.

NEYDL- Whitley Bay 20/05/18
Report by Helen Jones
Another glorious sunny day in Whitley Bay, I must say I could get used to this weather.
Our team was smaller than our last match because of exam commitments, illness, injury and the usual family occasions. However this led to an enormous team spirit, everyone encouraging every performance. People were prepared to have a go at anything intermingled with some spectacular individual performances, resulting in a wonderful day.
Among the many highlights of the day was the breaking (again) of the League Javelin record by Charlie Jefferson. Well done Charlie you will break 50m yet!! Our intensive relay training earlier in the season, ensured we got the baton round and made a decent showing in this area. We had the only pole vaulters of any of the teams. And we had a healthy showing in the girls long jump and many of the throws. In her first High jump competition, Georgia managed to be the last one standing and cleared 1.18m! Well done to all, brilliant effort.
The low lights included me having to spend the day in my slippers having forgotten my trainers!!
