It was great to see one of our own returning to the race to win in handsome style, with Sol Sweeney returning to Scotland after his efforts at the British Championship in Birmingham last weekend. Sol won the race in what looked to be a very comfortable time of 34.49.
The women’s race was won by Louise Tyler of Dunblane Road Runners in 42.09.
Next Harrier after Sol was Wattie Mackay 2nd MV50, in a time of 40.05.
First Junior was Sol’s brother Levi, in an excellent time of 43.16, closely followed by Maddy Watson finishing in an excellent second position in the women’s race, and taking the prize for the first Local Lady, in a time of 43.32. Not far behind was Daryl van Blerk, in 43.50. The other Harriers times were:
Lauren Fairweather, 7th woman, 49.50
Gordon Morrison: 52.28
Al Nicholl: 55.42
Fran Loots: 59.49
Janine Grant: 1.00.09
Wattie, Maddy and Lauren all played Championship wildcards, picking up good points.
