Pit Stop 10K 4th July 2012
Darlington Harriers hosted The Pit Stop 10k on Wednesday 4th July, held at the Croft Motor Racing Circuit. A flat course, a windless evening, racing shoes on and off we go aiming for new PB territory. Only two New Marske Harriers were flying the flag that evening Erin Pearson almost achieved a podium finish placing 4th in 42:41 and I chugged along in 33rd place (8th in the vet 40 category) with a time of 40:18. The race itself was very well organised and well attended with 220 finishers. It consists of 3 laps of the circuit with runners needing to take the racing line to avoid running extra distance on the wide track, be warned though there is no chequered flag at the end of the penultimate lap.
