Five Harriers took on the Jimmy Irvine Bellahouston 10k in Glasgow in challenging weather conditions - rain, wind and generally not very nice. Wattie successfully defended his V50 title with a time of 36.27 in 17th position overall. Colin Lamont was second Harrier in 38.53, with Tony making a return to racing after injury finishing in 43.59, and Andy A setting a new pb of 44.24. Maddy followed her tough short-course cross-country on Saturday with a very good 46.35, showing that student life isn't getting in the way of her running.
The race was won by Neil Renault of Edinburgh AC in 31.32, ahead of Crieff 10k winner and record holder Robert Gilroy in 32.32. Robert reckoned the conditions costs him about 40 seconds, so Andy's pb probably would have been even better with decent weather. Hats off to Nic and Drew for standing in the wind and rain supporting.
