The weekend got off to a really good start for Dominic HARRIS at the Temple Park 5k at South Shields on Friday 19th May. On this renowned fast course Dom smashed his previous 5k pb to finish 24th of just over 100 runners in a brilliant 17.47. Dom won the Most Improved Male Award last year and is still improving!
The following morning Harriers were in action again at various parkruns. The highlight was Carole PAGE finishing 1st female for the 28th time at Druridge Bay. Carole was just outside her course best completing in 21.17, whilst Alice TETLEY-PAUL was 3rd female home. Elsewhere Tim FALCONER was agonisingly just over 20 minutes at Hackney Marshes, David HINDMARSH ran well at the Rising Sun Parkrun at Wallsend, Zoe ROBSON was at the Nonsuch Parkrun in Surrey and Richard EASTOE was at his local Workington Parkrun.
