    On behalf of Newburgh Nomads Running Club, organisers of the Harrock Hill race series, it is with deep sadness we confirm that on Wednesday 23rd May 2018, Peter Weatherhead running for Wirral AC, collapsed while running the 8.5km Harrock Hill course. Peter died at the scene.

    First responders including fellow runners and race marshalls were on the scene immediately and performed CPR. Emergency services were quickly in attendance and were offered continued assistance by runners and race marshalls. Despite all efforts they were unable to resuscitate Peter. NNRC have reported events to the FRA and England Athletics and offer ongoing assistance in this matter.

    We have waited until Peter's family have been informed before releasing this news.

    All members of our small running club are deeply saddened by the unfortunate and untimely death of a fellow athlete and sportsman. We offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends and club.
    I'd like to thank all who helped on the hill or at race HQ for their generous and selfless support in difficult circumstances.

    Chris Usher.
