Well, didn’t we have a lot of runners at the first evening league race? I hope you all enjoyed it particularly those new to evening league events. Harrogate Harriers did an excellent job hosting the race and I’ve received a special thanks from their chairman for Cath Barber who volunteered to do all the race signage. A huge task for which they didn’t have anyone qualified. Well done Cath, showing once again what a friendly club we really are.
