The Darlington 10k is also very popular as a well organised and fast race.

This year it attracted international GB athlete, Gemma Steele, who won the women’s race in 33:46.

Tadele Geremew Mulugeta, from Elswick Harriers, won the men’s race in 31:24.

Hartlepool’s Paul Wilson was the first Burn Road Harrier to cross the line in 35:48, a couple of minutes outside his best time over the distance, but happy nonetheless.

Darren Armstrong set himself a new PB in 36:06. A great result for Darren who will certainly go sub-35 soon.

Richard Hodgson excels on the road and always finishes amongst the top Vet50 Men.

He raced to the finish line just 10 seconds outside his best time in 37:41.

Steven Morrison was next in 37:58, with John Davis following in 39:40.

Bryan Astill took the course in his stride, crossing the line in 40:40, with Keith Galbraith next in 44:21.

Pauline Ranson had a good run in 56:08 and Julie and Christopher McGrath both showed good form in the sunshine to finish in 63:54 and 64:41.
