Stew is piping hot on cold day.
STEWY BELL warmed up for his annual trip to Dubai with a hard-fought victory in the Derwentside AC's Hellhole 10k Multi-Terrain Race.
With a cold wind hampering the athletes' efforts, it was not the ideal preparation for a trip to warmer climes, but Bell shrugged off the persistent challenge of Heaton's James Buis to win by eight seconds.
In his usual fashion, Bell swept to the front and, after the completion of the opening kilometre, had opened up a cushion of 20 metres, with Buis his only challenger.
The gap between the leading pair hardly increased during the rest of the race, with the Chester-le-Street athlete coming home eight seconds clear of his rival.
In third place, over a minute behind the runnerup, was James Jarvis James "Bud" Jarvis (Born - December 7, 1907 in Fort Williams, Ontario, Canada) was a Canadian Professional Hockey Left Winger who played 3 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Quakers and Toronto Maple Leafs. of Herne Hill Harriers Herne Hill Harriers Athletics Club founded in 1889.
