Some of the North East’s best junior athletes were in action a couple of weeks ago as local clubs came together to take part in the region’s premier athletics event. Middlesbrough Sport Village was the location for a full weekend of serious competition at the annual North East Counties Athletics Association Championships.
As always, there was an impressive turnout from Darlington Junior Harriers from Under 13’s and older and some even more impressive results to go with them……

Ellie Phillips had a fantastic run in the Under 17 1500m, beating her PB by 10 seconds, in a time of 4:49.23. She was just pipped at the post, beaten by just one tenth of a second! Great effort, Ellie, well done!
Well done to all our Junior Harriers that took part. As always, you have done yourselves and your club proud. Special congratulations go out to Charlotte Rutter and Jasmine Sharp who both achieved Championship Best Performances – an outstanding achievement……and it gets better!
Charlotte was also awarded the girl’s ATHLETE OF THE MATCH for Day 1!
Well deserved in our opinion! ☺
