The senior men’s team won Dam Flask relays and the South Yorkshire title convincingly with over 100 teams competing. Dave Archer ran the fastest time of the night (18:19) on the opening leg to put them into a lead they never lost. Tom Jenkins ran 18:49 (5th fastest overall), Adam Dyson 18:59 (8th fastest overall) and Ben Beattie 18:58 (7th fastest overall) to bring the team home.
There was a very encouraging performance from our junior men who finished 4th. Connor Milnes led the opening leg until the final climb and came home in 2nd in 18:48, the 4th fastest time of the night. Ewan South ran 20:19 on the second leg for 3rd place and Sam Peters ran an identical time for 4th place. Josh Walton brought the team home in 4th in 19:57.
The vet’s team were just behind in 5th overall to take the vet’s title. Scott Wilson led off in 19:20 for 4th with Dean Furniss 6th in 20:32, Stuart Maycock 5thin 20:14 and Carl Edgell 5th in 19:19.
The senior men’s B team were 7th, giving HHS 4 of the leading 7 teams. Phil Cooper was 7th in 19:59, Pete Hodges moved the team up to 5th with 19:49, Jon Slate was 6th in 21:08 and Craig Fishwick led the team home in 7th in 20:46.
There was a very disappointing turn out from the women with only Nicky Squires and Hannah Whitelam to represent HHS. Nicky ran the second fastest time of the night to win the opening leg in 20:56. Hannah Whitelam ran the 13th fastest time in 23:26.

Steel City Striders annually organise the Dronfield Relays and we would like to invite Hallamshire Harriers to put out a team (or more than one). The race is Sunday July 13th and is a friendly, inclusive & low key event starting at 10:30am at Holmesfield. It is teams of six with three pairs of runners each running 5 mile legs around a total 15 mile loop that is mainly footpath and bridleway. We will put out several Striders teams and all of our teams will be pre-mixed by ability so everyone’s got a shot at victory. There’s food afterwards (usually at George & Dragon, but tbc).
It would be great to welcome Hallamshire runners if you would like to join. A team would be £10 and please could you send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you would like to enter teams.
