FOUR Clydesdale Harriers took the ferry over to the island of Cumbrae to run in the 10.25 mile Road Race on the weekend of the 11th.
In truly atrocious conditions the fastest harrier was Stuart Allison (pictured left) who finished 26th overall in a time of 69.25, followed by Marina McCallum (71.18 and second female), Christine Duncanson (79.50 and first veteran over 45), and Marie Rippon (90.02).
Coming soon for the harriers are the relay events – first event on September 24 is the George Cummings Road Relays at Houston (2.30pm start), followed by the McAndrew Road Relays in Jordanhill (3pm start).
After that there are three cross country relay events – on the 8th is the West Districts (venue to be confirmed), followed a week later by the Dunbartonshires (Duchess Woods, Helensburgh), and finally the nationals (Cumbernauld) on the October 22.
The West districts and the nationals are pre-entry only so if any harriers are interested they will have to let either Yvonne Green (secretary), Marina McCallum (ladies captain), or Paul Carroll (men’s captain) as soon as possible, contact details on the club website.
