Joe Percy Invitational 10k Road Race 2024

The Joe Percy was held on 12 June 2024 starting at finishing at Storthes Hall.  An excellent turnout of 38 Harriers meant we were well represented in the team competition.  The ladies (first 10 ladies to count) finished first ladies team overall and the men (first 10 men to count) finished second men’s team overall.  Helena was also first lady overall.  An excellent effort by everyone that turned up in this prestigious local event.  The harriers results are shown below with the victorious team members highlighted.
