A big number of Harriers were in action on Saturday 5th May at the Druridge Bay Parkrun, where almost 250 runners turned out no doubt partly due to the glorious weather. First Harrier home in 21.00 and 1st in the male 50 category was Tim FALCONER. He was 30 seconds ahead of Neil HAMILTON who was a minute ahead of John CUTHBERT. Also for the lads there were course personal bests for Chris STEWART and Junior Harrier Harry ELLABY. For the ladies Jo POWELL continues to get faster as she bagged another pb as well as the 3rd placed female slot.
