Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014

International representation for the Harriers

Sunday, April 17, 2016

Club president Gordon Morrison was flying the colours for the club at the Fruehlingslauf 10k in Werl, a small town just east of Dortmund. As Gordon reports:

"Another flat course, but thankfully a 'proper' route on quiet roads and farm tracks rather than circuits of a park. It was a beautiful spring day and a pleasure to run in warm sunshine for the first time this year! I would have loved to get under 45 mins but was still very pleased to finish in 45.09, in 16th place out of a very small field of 36 runners. My race selection strategy - enter small races with lots of prizes - was fully vindicated by my finishing as first MV60 and picking up a certificate and a bottle of wine! In my defence I will add that, once again, there were at least a few proper runners taking part too, and the winning time was 34.46."
