This report was first published on the Northern Echo website:
Several members of the Quakers Running Club were up bright and early on Sunday morning to help out with Darlington’s Race for Life held at South Park.
The club has been involved with assisting in the annual charity run since 2002 and this year was no exception with over 60 club members giving up their time to help in organising, as well as marshalling, the 5K route which saw over 3,000 people taking part this year.
Amongst the runners was Cancer Research’s Health and Safety Manager, Helen Nassau, visiting from London. Afterwards she stated “I was over the moon with the organisation of the route and the marshals who were situated around the course. I’ve never seen a Race for Life with such support from volunteers and had never witnessed such an overwhelming amount of enthusiasm and support from the marshals. I was clapped and cheered around the whole course, it was amazing!”
Once again a huge turnout from the club to support this year’s race.
