Quorum Supports Memorial Race - Quorum Park

Quorum was pleased to be the lead sponsor of the Heaton Harriers traditional Memorial race, run on Remembrance Sunday every year since the 1920s.  It was particularly poignant given the centenary of the Armistice. 

This year the race was also the North East Counties Athletic Association 10k Senior Women’s and Men’s Road Race Championships, so the race attracted a strong field. 

The winner of the ladies race was the Olympic marathon runner Aly Dixon, bib 111 in the photo of the starting line.  Next to her in bib 352 is Darren Purvis who was the interior architect of the recently launched Neon building at Quorum.  Also pictured in bib 17 is the men’s winner Adrian Bailes from Birtley.
