On the eve of the Strathearn Marathon, a dozen Harriers made the Saturday evening trip to Strathallan School for their 5 mile road race. The race comprises two laps of an interesting course, with one very swift downhill on each lap, accompanied by a corresponding grind uphill. Not for the first time, Wattie was leading the charge, finishing 5th overall, 1st MV50 in 29.26. Tara Forster was next in, 3rd women, 1st Junior woman, in 33.28. Andy Gallagher followed in 31st position, in 34.27, and we then a block in 43rd, 44th, 45th and 46th places, with Mark Dillon leading Daniel Forster, ahead of Maddy Watson and Iain Thomson, who enjoyed a last race for the line with Maddy pipping Iain by a couple of seconds.
Good championship points were gained by Wattie, Andy, Mark, Maddy, Nic, Rachel and Rowan, all playing their wildcards.
