Four Harriers made the trip to East Fife for the Balmullo trail race. First Harrier home, with a very good effort following his Glen Shee 9 exploits the previous weekend, was Ben Murphy, in 15th position, in a time of 32.52. Next in was Lauren Fairweather in 39.54, ahead of Iain Thomson in 43.32 and Nicola Watson, making a welcome return to racing, in 43.57.
The men's race was won by Gordon Mathieson of Falkland Trail Runners in 29.22, and the women's race was won by Anna Hedley of Fife AC in 32.47.
Lauren and Ben picked up good Championship points, with Lauren sitting on top of the women’s standings, and Ben threatening to make a late burst for the line.
