North East Official of the Year
Wednesday 27th September was a special night for New Marske Harriers. We not only had some outstanding performances on the track and field this year but we also won ‘Official of the Year’, from England Athletics, for the North East.
A presentation evening was held at Lumley Castle, in Chester-le-Street. Toby Jones received the award from guest speaker Stephen Miller, (multiple para Olympian), for his work in making it possible for a lot of the competition tracks to be able to use photo finish equipment.
This has already proved invaluable to an under 13 girl doing multi-events recently who broke the UK points record. As photo finish was used it was possible to claim the record.
Toby continues to put the infrastructure in place for this technology, and is running a course in November for people to learn how to use this equipment. If anyone is interested in photo finish please contact Toby on 07798872736.
