This is a race that should be on all calendars and is not a race for the faint hearted, it’s what I would call a race of two halves. Firstly Darren Bilton is in charge of this race which is now in its 5th outing and is aimed at raising money for the Help for Heroes and some local charities. Up to now Darren has handed over £12000 from the participants wanting to put themselves through a gruelling challenge.
I’ve been a Harrier for nearly ten years now and I’ve always loved reading the monthly news letters/race reports, even back when they were printed out and handed round at club. Think I still have a few old paper ones boxed up somewhere actually. Anyway, my point being I’m well overdue a race report. So here goes (excuse any grammar mistakes), I know Matty can’t read so Ali you might have to read this out loud and Nige, put your glasses on!
For the second consecutive Sunday a Harriers raiding party crossed the Humber to take part in Barton & District AC’s Deepdale Dash 10k. This popular event is rated as one of the top 3 10k events by Runners World magazine readers, it features an undulating course starting outside Baysgarth School looping out into the countryside before returning to Barton and finishing on the school playing field.
