This event could not have taken place without the help of the army of volunteers, course marshals who stood out in the freezing conditions for hours and all those who did an excellent job with the catering and cleaning up afterwards. The organisers gave the vote of thanks to Darlington in doing a commendable job. A big thanks to all.
Jack Mason ran the Cayton Christmas Cracker 10km race at Scarborough on December 14 finished 21st in 36.52.

Lewis Moses started his running career at Darlington Harriers as a 12 year old after winning the Darlington Schools Cross Country, making a brief appearance at QRC before moving to Aycliffe Running Club to join Coach Paul Harker where he was coached by former runner and five time club champion Paul Harker before moving back to Darlington Harriers in 2008 as an U23 athlete .
Lewis who was a middle distance specialist had some impressive results in his first year winning in both 800m and 1500m, representing England in the U23 Championships, following this up in 2009 with a superb 3:45:02 in Watford at BMC Nike Grand Prix bettering this in 2010 to 3:42.6 at the corresponding event a year later. Lewis continued his impressive form over the next two years in particular in indoor where he competed in the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Istanbul 1500m and finishing 2nd in Vienna in the Indoor Classic when he had moved onto Loughborough Students and New Marske harrier and coached by former athlete John Nuttall.
