Jason Miles-Campbell, Ben Murphy and I travelled down to Tillicoultry for the first running of the Tilli 10k race, organised by PH Racing. Ben was first Harrier, albeit wearing a slightly dodgy brown vest, in 12th position a fine time of 36.47. I had my best 10k of the year with a time of 42.05, and Jason finished in 1.01.00. The race was won by Scottish international and Commonwealth medallist Robbie Simpson in a blistering 30.44.
Well done to our lone competitor Andy Aitken in Aberdeen for the East District Championships. Andy completed the 8.5k course in 38.16.
Tony Wayte had a fine morning out at the 7Rs trail half marathon round seven reservoirs in the Pentland Hills, just south of Edinburgh. Conditions were well nigh perfect for the time of year, and he was happy with his time of 1.42.40, 30th position overall, 6th MV50.

We have a lively and active Junior Harriers section, open to all between the ages of 9 and 16. Juniors meet on 5.30pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Taylor Park in Crieff.
The Club organises three races. In June, we host The Strathearn Marathon, a rewarding marathon in a beautiful Perthshire setting, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite on the Scottish marathon circuit.
In July we hit the trails to the west of Crieff for one of Scotland's most enjoyable and scenic 10ks. Full race information and online entry here for The Crieff 10k.
And in September, we organise a great hill relay race in the hills above Comrie - full race information here for the Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay.
