Weekly Round-Up w/e 12th May

Welcome to Darlington Harriers Weekly Round-up Report, keep reading to see what has occurred this week and what is coming up for club members.

How do I?…

Our club was formed in 1891, but how did the club become Darlington Harriers? Who were the people that founded the club?  Read about some of the great athletes that have graced our club, Olympians George Butterfield, Robert Hawkey and Joy Grieveson. Read about Fred Wyers who competed in the 1958 Commonwealth Games and other notable athletes such as Bob Stockdale, William Wylie, Ian Barnes, Paul Harker, Lewis Moses, Kieran Maxwell who have graced our club over the years and let’s not forget all the current members. The club is steeped in the town’s history from basic beginnings to current day and these pages will be updated daily as I trawl through the British Newspaper Archives.

Get Involved

We want to see the club colours at all of our events, especially team events such as relays, National, Northern or North-Eastern where we can get together as a group, support each other and make these events a social occasion. So let me introduce you to our Senior Club Captains.

In addition to athletes, we are always looking for volunteers to support club and local events so please reach out to Sarah Johnson as your first point of contact if you can support in any way shape or form. Thank you! #UTH

Don’t forget you can support the club by registering for the easyfundraising app and helping the club raise money. This is simple to do, download the App, link to the club then clicking on the easyfundaising app prior to making your online purchases (It’s only one additional step in the process)

Race Result

At the weekend we had a number of our athletes in action at the Sunderland running events taking on one of the days offering, the 10km or Half marathon. In the 10km race it was Andrew Bainbridge who took top honours breaking his PB by over 40 seconds finishing in an excellent 36:17 seconds with Helen Stephenson doing the same in the ladies race as she stormed in at 41:36. Graham Garvey put in his fastest performance for a number of years in 44:11 while Andrew Glencross broke 50mins in 49:28. Excellent performances from all of our 10km runners, results below.

In the Half marathon Mark Haymer was first home in just over the 90 minute mark with Rachel Emmott finishing 1st lady in 1:35. Paul Dunne was just behind Rachel also sub 1:36 while Brian Thompson finished in 2:08:49. Well done everyone.
