Richmond and Zetland Harriers
It was one of those quieter weeks for the athletes of Richmond and Zetland Harriers, a time to recharge the batteries and work on some speed, however there were others who still went at it full tilt. Steve Sadler went on his travels to Haweswater for the half marathon to get in some race training ahead of the London marathon, all be it slightly different in respect of the steeper hills, the high winds and the scenery were more pleasant. Steve produced a very pleasing performance in 33rd and the 6th V50 (1:29:18).

Dalton park has a 10km run and some of our athletes had a trial run out, with Steve Middleton in 9th and the 1st V40 (36:35) and Ian Christon just behind in 14th (37:45). Ollie Middleton took on the shorter 5km route to finish in 37th overall and the 5th junior in a great time (27:08).
