Looking back what a day, there was smiles, laughter, drinking, pain, pleasure, drinking, sweat, cramping, did I say drinking. All in all, a cracker of an event and I think I reflect the thoughts of the club that hopefully it will grow and become a permanent fixture on the race calendar
Who needs blow up dolls and fancy dress to have fun. All you need is a coach load of enthusiastic Harriers heading to Blackpool for the Northern Relays 6 stage men, 4 stage ladies. It’s a credit to the club that we managed to get 3 men’s teams and 4 ladies filling our full quota of runners we could enter and making us the envy of many local clubs.
The inaugural Barton AC 5km road race was held on a one lap rural course starting and finishing at the Haven Arms, Barrow Haven. The course was mainly flat with one or two slight rises, making for a potentially fast route for the competitors. The race was restricted to 100 participants, which included 9 from EHH.
