Race Results

Saturday saw the clubs 10mile event take place at the towns South Park. Again it was an excellent turnout from club runners and officials which made the event possible. The race was won by Durham City’s Will Lindsay in 55:52 but club runners Chris Fothersgill, Colin Taylor and Paul Allan, who incidentally was using the event to pace his upcoming Chicago marathon finished 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively.

The event was made possible by an amazing team of supporters from the club who fulfilled all roles on the day. Thank you everyone who came along and supported. Results for South Park 10 can be found here

Earlier in the week we had some of our runners at the latest Darlington Trail race at South Park. The 5k (or in this case around 2.7m race) had a new name on the winners list as club runner Harry Wilson showed veteran, and race favourite Colin Taylor a clean pair of heels by edging him out by 5 seconds. V60 runner Phil Teece was also in action along with Harry’s parents Kevin and Sarah who finished 5th, 8th and 12th in a field of 36. Well done all of you.

In a time where officials are at a premium, was fantastic to see two of our very own supporting a recent U20’s international event at Swansea. Mark Tallon and Sarah Johnson who are two of our club officials and are constantly banging the drum for people to get involved showed terrific leadership by supporting this event and showing people what can be achieved away from the track, road and field. Well done guys, you are both a credit to the club.
