HARLOW Running Club competed in the last round of the Herts/Essex Mid Week Road Race League Division 2 over an undulating 10K course at Hitchin. Harlow went into this race in 3rd position out of 9 teams, 1 point behind rivals Royston, knowing that a good performance on the day could see them gain promotion. Once again the ladies outshone the men by coming 2nd in their race with the men 3rd and overall HRC were 2nd to gain 15 points, 1 more than Royston. This meant that both teams finished the league on 58 points with North Herts Road Runners on top with 70 points. With only two teams being promoted Royston finished 2nd on count back by virtue of a better individual total leaving HRC missing out by the narrowest of margins.

First Harlow lady to finish was Louise Tankard in 4th place out of 99 finishers in an excellent 43min 32sec. She was followed home by Julia Gardiner 8th and 3rd Vet 35 in 44min 55sec, Sharon Wright 11th in 45min 40sec, Dionne Jones 12th in 45min 45sec and Paula Reynolds 13th in 46min dead.
