Champ Darren spurs Harriers to victory
The Tandle Hill Trail Race in Middleton was the final contest in Todmorden Harriers Trail Championships.
Darren Tweed is this year’s champion and has won the admiration of his clubmates for the improvement he has made each year.
His efforts last weekend helped Harriers to be the winning team at Tandle, where Paul Brannigan won the age 50-54 class and Matthew Flanagan, in his first race for the club, won the age 40-44 class.
Tod’s other winner was Peter Erhardt in the age 65-69 class. Peter was pushed hard by clubmate Reg Czudek over the last half mile and there was just one second between them at the finish.
