At the Summer Coast 5km race at Redcar we had another good showing of Harriers. Simon Rogers was the first of the club to finish with a seasons best 18.10, Pauline Brown first lady after running an excellent 20.37 for a new personal best! With prizes awarded for age grading it was another successful night for some of our ‘experienced runners’. Personal bests for Philip Doonan, Brian Thompson and plenty seasons bests out there. As always some impressive running right through our group and plenty points towards the club road championships.
On the following evening we had another good showing at the Sunderland 5km race, a race known for it’s fast course and fast times and Thursday proved to be the case with some exceptional performances. This course starts with an steep downhill which gives you a great platform to gain a great time and even a sub 18min time does not guarantee you a top 100 finish. Lee Johnson proved again he is top gun with his 15.28 finish ahead of James Largey who again showed his class finishing in 15.34. The legend that is John Clifford finished in 16.36 3 seconds ahead of the returning Paul Allan who is once again starting to show his class.
Dean Standish, Iain McCulloch, Adam Harker, Andrew Bainbridge and Ted Kerby all achieved personal bests, some by some margin and our other runners Shaun Marshall and Graham ‘The Champ’ Hindmarsh both put in excellent runs. Superb all of you!
Sunday saw a number of our Harriers take on the Penguin 5 mile race at Redcar. This is another of the races put on by New Marske Harriers and are very popular due to the flat and fast courses and not too much of an effort to get to from Darlington. Neil Chalmers (not listed as DHAC was first to finish in 37:46 with Brian Thompson first of our listed Harriers to finish breaking the 40 minute mark with Trevor Mitchell not too far behind. Some excellent performances from all of our C2 Beyond runners on the day, well done all of you!
