Seven Harriers made the trip to Pitlochry for the LiveActive 10k, the 10th race in the club championship. It's not often you'll hear Scottish runners complain about the heat in September, but the afternoon was distinctly warmer than anticipated!
The race was won by Myles Bax, of Perth Road Runners in a time of 34.06. First Harrier home was Aaron Dawson, in 17th position with a time of 39.09. Next in was Wendy Taylor, 2nd woman, 1st FV40, in a time of 43.05, gaining her very good championship points.
Tony Wayte was next in, with a time of 43.22 in 55th position (7th MV50), with Andy Gallagher dogging his heels to finish in 43.31 in 57th position (8th MV50), Mark Dillon in 45.59 in 86th position (15th MV50), not far ahead of Iain Thomson in 87th position (4th MV60). New club member Janette Clark finished in 55.57 (14th FV50).
Mark maintained his 100% record for club championship races - a formidable feat in its own right!
Wendy's points consolidate her position at the head of the women's championship, while Aaron moves up into 4th position in the men's championship.
