Despite icy conditions underfoot which led to a shortened course, Mark Dillon, Nicola Watson, Lauren Fairweather and Julia Greenlees had a successful Sunday morning trip to Balbirnie Park for the second race in the Falkland Trail Runners Trail Busters winter series. Mark was first Harrier home in 20.48, with Ladies team captain leading the women home in 22.14, with Lauren not far behind in 23.31 and Julia in 24.47.
Lynne and Andy Aitken enjoyed some Spanish sunshine at the Murcia Marathon and 10k. Making the most of the warmth, both Lynne and Andy scored big personal best times, with Lynne coming home in 50.03 in the 10k and Andy in 3.29.26.
Ben Murphy took an excellent 3rd place at the Buchlyvie with an outstanding new personal best time of 36.54 in challenging conditions and a couple of shoelace issues. Hopefully this is just the start of a terrific racing year for Ben.

We have a lively and active Junior Harriers section, open to all between the ages of 9 and 16. Juniors meet on Sunday mornings and Thursday evenings at Taylor Park in Crieff.
The Club organises three races. In June, we host The Strathearn Marathon, a rewarding marathon in a beautiful Perthshire setting, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite on the Scottish marathon circuit.
In July we hit the trails to the west of Crieff for one of Scotland's most enjoyable and scenic 10ks. Full race information and online entry here for The Crieff 10k.
And in September, we organise a great hill relay race in the hills above Comrie - full race information here for the Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay.
