Darren Riley joins League Legends (01/12/2014)

Sparkhill Harriers Darren Riley has contacted us to claim his place on the League Landmarks table,

The recent race at Leamington marked my 30th anniversary of competing in the Birmingham league. After running as a youth, I made my debut for the Sparkhill senior cross country team on 3rd November 1984 in division 1 on the old Warley Woods course. Including Leamington, I have completed 106 races in the league. Leamington was also my 50th consecutive run and the 100th time that I have counted in the Sparkhill scoring 6. Cross country has always been my favourite and best running surface giving me some great memories and I have great respect for those that are still competing from my first season back in 1984.
