Athletics Report – Harriers 2nd in Sherman Cup

In the North East Harrier League Sherman Cup competition the City Harriers finished a very creditable 2nd Team overall behind Morpeth Harriers and ahead of Gateshead Harriers who were 3rd, out of the 36 (Male) Teams who finished covering the age groups of u/13,u/15, u/17, u20/Senior and Veteran Men, where individual performances and team positions were vital in these races and where the handicap system does not apply for this Competition. It is worth mentioning some fine individual performances by Dan Jenkin who was 3rd in the Men’s Race, Cameron Thomas 5th in the u/17s, Peter Cook 5th in u/15s and Stephen Everett (v/55) 56th overall and (7th) Veteran.
However, in the Davison Shield competition due to the lack of numbers across the board in all the age groups Durham could only finish 14th out of the 38 (Female) Teams.
