On Saturday afternoon the Harriers were out in force again at Hetton Relays, a 2.2mile loop on an undulating course.

Great turnout, many who are not in this photo.We even had other clubs telling us what a big turnout we had which is always good to hear.

Well done to race Captains for organising, good day out and a bit of fun for all concerned.


Paul Lowe, David McKenna and Jamie Baldasera headed to Osmotherley on Saturday evening to take on the Dark Skies 10k race which has over 650ft of climbing to tackle too.

Official results haven’t been released however I can report that Paul, David and Jamie made it a 1-2-3 for the club from a relatively small field.

Well done gents, can’t do anymore than a clean sweep

The final instalment of XC took place on Sunday afternoon at Richmond.Results will be out later but massive respect to Mark Tallon and Lesley Miller for organising the troops this year and to everyone who has supported the team this season.Well done.
