13 Harriers took part in the Druridge Bay 10k on Sunday 28th May where there were some excellent personal performances and a fair few prizes for our runners! Our mens team captain Dominic HARRIS showed what a decent runner he is becoming by finishing a brilliant 3rd overall in 37.33. Allan FOGGON finished 9th and Peter GREY was 21st, meaning that our trio of HARRIS, FOGGON and GREY won the mens team prize! For the ladies Lisa BASTON was 1st home for us in 80th overall, just ahead of the winner of the female veteran trophy Diana WEIGHTMAN. Grand Prix standings will be out soon.
