Despite grim weather conditions , we had a good turnout for the first race of the Club Championship on Lady Mary's Walk. Once again, we had strong contributions from the boys from the Development Squad, with Lewis and Duthac leading the way for the Juniors. First home was Wattie, followed by Charlie, with Lewis leading the Juniors charge in 3rd place overall. For the women, Maddy was first home in 21.41, followed by Cathy in 23.26, and Lauren in 29.15.
Another big day for the Harriers at the Devil's Burdens relay was enlivened by some last-minute team changes and perfect weather for the annual romp round the Lomond Hills. Top marks to the men's team for the 15th place finish and to Maddy for her terrific effort running Leg 1 for the women and Leg 4 for the mixed team. Lots of hard work from everyone involved. I'm definitely not doing Leg 2 next year.
30 Harriers, in varying states of sobriety and even some without hangovers, and assorted dogs (I think the dogs were mostly sober) assemble at the Royal Hotel in Comrie at the ungodly hour of 9.30 on New Year's Day for the traditional run up to the Melville Monument. The weather was pretty foul, but good cheer was in abundance on the way and mud was plentiful on the way down. Happy New Year!
Runners of all ages and levels of fitness are most welcome at our club training runs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with some seasonal variation.
Whether you are local or a visitor to the area, a competitive runner or occasional jogger, if you like to run, why not come along and join in?
We have a lively and active Junior Harriers section, open to all between the ages of 9 and 16. Juniors meet on Sunday mornings, with a further Development Squad session on Thursday evenings for runners over 12 who meet required standards.
Each year the Club organises what we like to think is one of Scotland's most enjoyable and scenic 10ks. Full race information and online entry here for The Crieff 10k.
We also organise a great hill relay race in September - full race information here for the Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay. And in 2012 we launched The Strathearn Marathon, a tough new marathon in a beautiful Perthshire setting, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite on the Scottish marathon circuit.
