Murphy makes it a clean sweep

Borders College sports lecturer Chrys Murphy has won the Borders Cross Country senior veterans’ (over-60) title for the second year in a row.

Not only that, but he came first in all six races in his group to claim the outright title.

What made this achievement more remarkable is that Chrys suffered a serious knee injury in the same race last year (a broken kneecap), but he was determined to get back to fitness and retain his title this year.

A Wooler man, Chrys also runs for and has coached Wooler Running Club, but now runs for Gala Harriers.
