Many of our intrepid Harriers are racing this weekend at the little known event “The Great North Run”, and there’s a group of members staying a little more local at the Bawtry Forest Trail 10k. So if you have the time to spare on Sunday why not turn on the TV and do a bit of Harrier spotting or head over to Bawtry and cheer in person!
Latest reports are uploaded to the Run Reports page – Milton 5km, Snowdonia Half, Cleethorpes parkrun, Doncaster Town centre and the Great Hucklow Fell Race.
Don’t forget it’s the next round in the Club Champs at the Grimsby 10k on Sunday, as well as the Round Donny Run on the same day – good luck everyone!
Why not have a wander over to the Run Reports page and read the team captain’s reports from Endure, as well as Mick’s tales from the latest KMR race at Roche Abbey and Adi’s report from the Caistor 10k. Inspiring stuff I hope you’ll agree!
The weekend of 28th-30th June saw 30+ Harriers, their support crew/family and pets descend onto Bramham Park for this year’s Endure 24 event. For those that don’t know (and there can’t be many of you left!), this is a 24-hour running “festival”, often called the Glastonbury for runners! It involves you and your team or partner (or solo, if you’re particularly brave!) running as many 5 mile laps in a 24-hour period as you can. That’s pretty much it – the only rule being you can only have one of your team running a lap at any time, so there’s a lot of logistics involved if you have a team of 5 or more (the Harriers usually run in mixed teams of 5).
This year we had 6 teams of 5, one pair (Laura Sydney and her friend) and one running solo (the ever inspiring Nicola Wilkinson, currently in the middle of her run-365 challenge). Our results can be found here, so you can see the amazing feat accomplished by all our teams. Run reports from the team captains are available on the Run Reports page, and a slideshow of the event is shown below. The Harriers will be there again in 2020, so keep an eye out for us – you can’t miss us!
