On Sunday, Dani Smythe achieved a decisive win in the Redcar half marathon.
This would be a cause for celebration in its own right, but extra recognition is due – and not just because the weather was so miserable. Redcar is the North East Counties Half Marathon Championship so, combined with her wins earlier in the summer at the Bridges of the Tyne and Tynedale Jelly Tea (both NECAA Championship races), Dani now holds the North East Counties titles for 5 miles, 10 miles and the half marathon
From everyone at Heaton Harriers – congratulations, Dani! We’re so proud to have you as a team mate, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.
