The inaugural Durham City Run over 5 & 10k is a Durham County Council initiative and was launched by Steve Cram, with both events starting simultaneously in Saddler Street looping around the picturesque City and finishing on Palace Green in front of the magnificent and iconic Cathedral. The 5k runners did 1 lap of the Course with the 10k runners completing 2 laps. The City Harriers turned out in force to support the event and were amongst the prize winners as it turned out. Rob Eaton (Senior) had a great run in the 5k Run finishing 2nd, whilst Joshua Erleback (u/15) was 1st Junior for the Club and Sam Gibson (u/13) 2nd Junior. In the 10k Race, Dan Jenkin produced yet another outstanding run finishing 3rd Senior (Male), whilst the ever consistent Rosie Smith finished 9th overall and 1st Senior (Female). Full results of the City runners were as follows:
