Longwood Harriers will be putting their best foot forward on Sunday in a second big event to celebrate their 125th anniversary.
While it’s more social than competitive, three teams of club members will be doing a 125-lap relay at Leeds Road Playing Fields (2pm).
Teams will be made up of boys, girls, seniors and veterans and anything between 10 to 20 runners.
The number of laps each athlete runs is dependent on how fit they are or how many are needed to complete the distance (some could have sore legs on Monday!).
The teams will be handed their batons by members of the team which won the National 4x1mile relay back in the 1960s, a team that included the former World record holder and Olympic medalist Derek Ibbotson. Tony Booth and Martin Steele will also be there. Bouncy castle and buffet afterwards.
Meanwhile, one Longwood Harrier is celebrating success at the Sainsbury’s UK School Games – Dan Walsh.
He was part of the winning North East Region team in the 4x100m relay with Tom Somers (City of York), Joe McGrath (Doncaster) and Leon Greenfield (Spenborough AC).
The gold capped off an excellent first season for Walsh, who has seen his personal best drop from 12.17sec to 10.70. He is now ranked joint fourth in the UK for the Under 17 age group.
