Darlington Harriers South Park 20

South Park 20


Flat and fast, PB potential

Darlington Harriers & AC, supported by the town’s Start Fitness, are hosting this multi lap event for those runners who are looking to run a fast 20 mile race, prepare for an Autumn full or half marathon. Using predominantly the same course as the parkrun, although removing the infamous ‘Squirrel Hill’ and starting outside the tropical bird cage…well it has a parrot. Runners will head out past the children’s play area before taking a sharp left down a slight incline before taking another left all the way down to the bandstand. Runners will go around the outskirts of the bandstand and past the bird lake on the runners right hand side until they are adjacent to the river Skerne before turning left one last time back to the starting point. Runners will receive a medal

Things to help the race go smoothly

  1. If you are signing up on the day it would be really helpful if you could bring the correct change to allow a quicker sign up process.
  2. Runners can wear headphones with music however runners should be aware of other runners around them and stay right where possible to allow overtaking on the left
  3. Runners finishing the race should avoid crossing the start finish line again as this can cause confusion within the results.
  4. Prizes will be given at the end of the race where possible at Race HQ within 30 minutes of the winner and where applicable will be posted out to winners
