Summer monthly 5k series
The June race took place on Tuesday 6th with 30 Harriers taking part. This is down from the 40 runners took part in the May race which in turn was an increase from April. The results for the June race are here
Entries for the Joe Percy (14th June) are now closed. We have 18 men and 15 ladies entered with the first 10 to count. Despite chasing emails and notifications of entry deadlines quite a few Harriers submitted their entry via the web site after the closing date. The organisers were kind enough to allow us an extension. Please can club members take notice of closing dates as in this case, without the chasing emails / FB posts and a deadline extension we would not have had a team.
As always, if you’d like your races and achievements celebrated in the Road Update, please let me know by finding me at the club or dropping me an email
