Harriers swarm to York

Race Reports

Nine harriers took on the PlusNet Yorkshire Marathon on Sunday morning, a race which has quickly established itself as one of the highlights of the White Rose County’s sporting year. This popular and picturesque run, with fantastic PB potential, takes runners past some of York’s historic sites and along scenic country lanes, making it an attractive prospect for runners of all abilities.

Official results for the day are now out and some fantastic times and achievements by all runners (including those not pictured)

Forty Five minutes after the marathon runners set off a number of Harriers took on the York 10 mile race. The course which takes in part of the marathon route is relatively flat with only a couple of cheeky little hills at miles 4 and 9.5 to tackle but nothing to worry anybody. Steven Wilkinson was first Harrier home finishing the day with a new personal best ahead of Paul Cook who pulled up lame yet again due to an ongoing hip injury. Other Harriers on the day had a good run, some also achieving new best times.

Well done all who ran. Full results can be found here for the 10 and here for the marathon
