Great photo of two Swansea Harriers each running their own race. Dewi Griffiths mixing it with the leaders and Simon Merrick, a former 800/1500m runner from the mid 1980’s who raced against Steve Ovett where he tripped up? The Ovett incident in 1985, completing his 210th consecutive Gwent League race. Photo by kind permission of Robert Gale.

Thank you again to all those who ran and equally so those outside of our scoring runners as they are very much a vital element of the teams, preventing the other club team accumulating as many points by placing ahead of their scoring runners. Click here for the full team and individual results.
