Members of Hambleton Athletics and Running Club (HARC) took part in the York Chocolate 10k on Sunday. The sell out event was back for a fourth year, with two laps of the Knavesmire, overlooked by Terry’s Clock Tower, the grandstands of York Racecourse and Goddard’s (once the home of the Terry’s of York Family).
HARC had a brilliant morning and all runners were rewarded with a goody bag full of chocolates, homemade cakes and a fabulous bespoke Willy Wonka inspired medal. A couple of members achieved personal bests, giving them the opportunity to ring the ‘PB Bell’ and receive a special badge.
HARC Chair Ruth Hancock participated in the event and said, “It was fabulous to see the sea of HARC blue around the course and so helpful to have a support crew cheering us on! Congratulations to everyone who took part; although flat, it was a challenging course due to the ever-changing weather and terrain. Great atmosphere, goody bag and medal bling… Chocolate 10K – we will be back!”
Anna added, “The team at See York Run York put a lot of thought into the event to make sure it was safe for competitors and spectators alike.”
HARC would like to say a massive thank you to event organisers SYRY for all their hard work creating such a fantastic event, not forgetting all the cake-baking behind the scenes!
