Oh what a night

In a few words, Gerry and the Pacemakers.

Yep, quite apt that Gerry should pen a song especially for YPH. Here goes:

When you walk through a storm

Hold your head up high

And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of a storm

There's a golden sky

And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind

Walk on through the rain

Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on

With hope in your heart

And you'll always be YPH

Thank you, thank you to our wonderful support team last night in a deluge they cheered, set up a home and cooked for us. Without doubt the performances of the night were from Simon, Melissa, Jo, Andy, Russ, Dolly, Lisa and the rest who took our standards to a completely different level. You don’t know how much it meant to us knowing you were there for us. I’m literally holding back the 😭

Performances on the track were equally impressive: Ian (all class) finished on the podium in third place. Marc ran a season’s best. Sugar tooth Dave Johnson ran a PB in 39. Jason ran a PB despite wet hair (I’m well jel). The ladies were immense last night. Dee, Deanna, Hannah and Katie carried the YPH torch with plenty of swag. Indeed, Hannah and Katie ran PBs against the eye of the storm. Cannonball Ben clocked the fastest sprint finish. He roars, he laughs, he is our very own international runner. A massive shout out for Jon. He is not a 100% at the moment yet he put his running shoes on and represented us, thank you Jon. Billy ran well just missing out on the top spot for the over 60 category. Everyone ran brilliantly last night. Sorry I can’t mention you all.

The fun was in the Gazebo afterwards. Laughing, eating, drinking. Other clubs dispersed straight after the race. We stuck together as we all know, we are stronger this way. Jo, Melissa and Simon were the most lovely and caring hosts anyone could hope for. Thank you. Thank you to all those who brought food and drink. I get the sense there will be a repeat next year.

I love being a Harrier. I hope you do to.

Run happy, be happy. Remember Gerry’s’ll never walk alone.
