Nick Gough and Tony Wayte ran the Seven Hills of Edinburgh race on Sunday. Nick ran very well to finish in 27th position in a time of 1.58.37. Tony took a rather more leisurely approach to the event, and finished in 2.20.37.
Roger Clark, Anne Hartmann and Tony Wayte headed west again, this time for the Skye half marathon. Conditions on the day were warm, to say the least, but that didn’t seem to impair Roger and Anne. Roger was 5th overall, 1st MV40, in an excellent time of 1.20.05. Anne was 16th overall, 2nd woman, just 30 second behind 1st place, to finish in another superb time of 1.28.02. Tony struggled over the second half of the race to finish in 1.34.23.
The 2018 Strathearn Marathon was won by 2013 winner and course record holder Roger van Gompel of Dundee Hawkhill Harriers in a time of 2.52.12. The women’s race was won by Jillian Gordon of Kinross Road Runners in a time of 3.18.30. First Harrier was Daryl van Blerk in 18th position, in a time of 3.18.48, and first female Harriers was Lauren Fairweather, 5th woman with an excellent 3.36.54.

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.
