A busy weekend for the club!
Friday evening saw a great turnout at the Harrier’s popular Brian Goodwin 10k, in nearby Pollok park. A friendly welcome and a lovely evening, with Callum Hawkins and Luke Traynor going head-to-head at the sharp end, and the beer and burger a popular reward for everybody who took part (as well as valuable club championship points!). We had a superb 40 runners complete the course, and many members out and about on the course supporting the local event.
Delighted to report that Ann Robin was overall third lady home in a fantastic 39:10, and together with Louise Ross and Shona Donnelly, took home the women’s team prize. Well done! Graeme Paterson led the club’s men home in a very impressive 34:59. Best of all, a healthy number of PB’s and season bests. A full race report available on the Harriers website, and the full club breakdown on stuweb. Thanks to the Harriers for once again staging such a super event.
A good number of member’s popped along for an easy (or not so easy!) recovery parkrun on Saturday morning, then on Sunday morning 24 members also helped out with marshalling the start of the Glasgow Men’s 10k, a great way to support the many men out taking part as well as help raise the club’s profile. Congratulations to everybody that took part, particularly all the father’s! Particular well done to the 8 members who ran the event, led home by Craig Reid who finished in 4th overall, and Stephen McQuade with a huge PB.
Thanks to Camilla Simms and Kevin Queenan for the pics.
