This was the third year the championships have been run in their present form. Whilst some 135 men and 66 ladies scored points few managed to complete the four races required to count in the championships. On the other hand Will Horsley was the only runner who did all six!!!

For those who did compete, it was a close contest for both men and women.

Well done to Ken Maynard (DFR), who, at 48 yrs old and with an injury in the first half of the year has proved consistent enough to win [... and Ken also managed to fit in an impressive BGR this year! - ed]. He had a bit of luck on his side too, with Joe Blackett (HBT) and Will Horsley (NFR) getting lost at Saltergate and with Will Horsley currently injured for the final race at Simonside Cairns. 

Congratulations too, to Karen Robertson (NFR) for completing her second championship success. Perhaps next year could be a hat trick. Competition for second place was close. Denise Tunstall (DFR) and Steph Scott (NFR) were neck and neck as far as points were concerned but Denise’s win at Chapel Fell Top tipped the balance. 

In the North East Hill Running Association (NEHRA) Championships that run in conjunction with the NECAA Championships, the tables were turned in the MV40 category with Joe Blackett narrowly beating Ken Maynard by four points.

In the men's 60 and 70 categories both Peter Whewell and Joe Garbarino both completed four races.

In the LV40 category Denise Tunstall was the only lady who completed the four races required to count in the championships. Her performance however was consistent in finishing first or second in each of her races. Susan Davis (NFR), who finished second, completed three races.  

For a third year Pat Cooper completed four races to win the LV50 category.

Kath Dallinson who is the only lady vet 60 in the region managed one race before having an operation on her foot.
