Weekly Round-Up w/e 28th January

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

Saturday saw the re-arranged club event at Croft circuit on a, lets call it breezy morning! As always big thanks to club members who came along to volunteer (Jeff and Lesley Miller, Brian Burdon and Alan Shepherd) alongside Sarah Elliott and Caroline Cook to help fill the gaps not filled by club members. Lee Johnson took top honours on the day with a 16:07 effort although he did tell me he ran 3.15m. No extra charge for the extra mileage Lee 😉

Full results can be found here, photo below of Stephen Dent and Kim Stephenson along with the ‘Darlo Runners’ running group.

We also had a number of athletes competing at the Northern XC at Sedgefield in slightly better conditions than when it was last there…definitely less snow. Full report for this event will follow from Barry Foster on the club website.
