Harrogate's spring marathoners


The weather this year hasn't been kind to those building up to the spring marathon season. Having trained undaunted by the snow, upwards of twenty Harrogate Harriers are making the final preparations before tackling the distance in coming weeks.  We have twelve runners competing at London, but it isn't all about the capital. Plenty of other events in the UK and overseas will feature the red vest of Harrogate this year.
