Action Girls

Race Reports

These two Under 13 Girls never seem to stop. If there’s a piece of the action to be had then they’re usually in the thick of it!

The multi-talented Tori Buckley certainly has more strings to her bow than your average 12 year old, and she showed us something else she was rather good at recently as part of the St Aiden’s Mountain Bike Girls Team. Having already won Gold at the Darlington Sports Games, the team went on to secure a bronze medal at the Regional Finals! Nice one, Buckers!

Then then there’s one of our top endurance runners, Libby Hammond. She joined several other Darlington Harriers on Sunday in the Ali Brownlee Middlesbrough 5k, and was the only junior amongst them! Libby ran with her usual grit and determination and finished with a smile in 22:40.

She was the 190th runner to cross the finish line out of the 1119 starters, the 21st female and we believe the youngest runner out of everyone taking part in the 5k race… And if that wasn’t enough, she was the 1st female Harrier to finish! Well done Libby, a tremendous performance!
