Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014

Club 5k race

Sunday, November 4, 2018

Many thanks to everyone who ran and helped with today’s club 5k. Particular thanks to Fi and Liz, who had to dodge falling branches at the finish, to Colin and Judith for catering duties, Rhona and Isla for showing Allan where Laggan Steading is, Mirela and Ruth for pointing people in the right direction, and to Andrew for sweeping. Race conditions were fine, if a little soft underfoot.

The race was won by Roger Goddard, in a time of 18.56, and Lauren won the women’s race in 22.51, and as has been the case with most of Lauren’s races this year, she took a good chunk of time off her 2017 time. As expected, the juniors put on a good show, with James 2nd overall, Jamie 7th overall, and Samantha 3nd female.

A special mention to Josie and Elaine, who ran the Glen Ogle 33 ultra on Saturday, and still had enough energy in their legs to move today.  

Finishing times were:

Roger G            18.56

James              20.28

Doug F             21.08

Andy G             21.15

Jake                 21.40

Derek               22.13

Jamie G            22.22

Lauren              22.51

Gerard              23.19

Cathy T             23.32

Samantha         24.29

Nic                   24.38

Rachel              24.52

Josie                29.07

Elaine M           30.43

Rowan              31.55

Fiona L             31.55

This race confirms Wattie and Lauren as Harriers Champions for 2018. In the men’s championship, Andy Gallagher pipped Ben at the post with his run today to finish in 3rd position, and I was 2nd. In the women’s championship, Maddy finished 2nd, with Rachel 3rd. Congratulations to all who took part.
