2021 NEHL Lambton Castle

North East Harrier League, Lambton Castle

A tough mixed terrain course including tarmac, gravel trail, grass and mud was made more treacherous after heavy morning rainfall.

The course layout was modified from previous events meant it was back loaded with two steep hills that got increasingly slippy as the races unfolded.
