Hambleton Athletics and Running Club members Charlie Villers and Phill Heward recently took part in the Darlington 10k. More than 2,000 runners set off to complete two laps of the town centre course in what has become a popular event for runners of all levels.
Darlington Borough Council worked with the Rotary Club of Darlington to organise the event which supports two nominated charities: Bright Red and County Durham Community Foundation.
Phill said, “The atmosphere on the day was really friendly and lots of runners were supporting each other during the race. The crowd along the route made lots of noise to help keep motivation high.”
Both our runners completed the 10k run in very impressive times – Phill crossed the line in 53:54, with Charlie close behind in 55:25. A huge well done to both runners!
