When the the harriers won the team prize at the OLD COUNTY TOPS race in May, the trophy was mistakenly awarded to Dark Peak Fell Runners. The mistake was eventually rectified and the team had their photo taken recently proudly holding the trophy. This represents an excellent achievement for our club, even more so because the victorious team contained six different runners from the GDH squad who won the trophy 4 years ago.
