A smaller than usual number of Harriers took part in the Drurudge Bay Parkrun on Saturday 28th July, no doubt due to the race of the year the following day, the Northumberland Coastal Run. There were some excellent performances from those who did take part, however, with James WILLOUGHBY putting in another eye catching run. James notched a course pb and finished 4th in 18.21. Carole PAGE was 1st female finisher yet again! She was 20th overall in 21.04. Robert BADDELEY was just behind Carole, with Chris STEWART our 4th finisher. Also of note 9 year old Rebecca HEELEY smashed her previous 5k pb to finish in a splendid 26.30!
