Old Colliery Canter

Another race from those lovely folks at ‘It’s Grim Up North Running’. Held at Rabbit Ings Country Park in Barnsley – home to an array of wildlife – including newts, snakes and herons. Runners could choose from a range of distances from 5K to marathon. There was apparently a slight hiccup with the route so some runners ran a little further than anticipated! Three Harriers took part. Results were as follows:

10K – Jules Hastings 1:03:11, Kirstie Wormald 1:22:23
Half-Marathon – Philip Ramsden 2:32:20

Boston Marathon UK

This claims to be the flattest marathon course in the country, held on the Sunday preceding USA Patriots Day (3rd Monday of April), the day of the more famous US Boston marathon. The race starts at Boston Market place and ends at Boston College. Hilary Wharam completed the course in 6:25:04. Another one to tick off her 100 marathon list. Well done Hils!
