The 125 Mile Relay organised by Norman Taylor with the help of his wife Jeanette, Alex & Anne Corbett was completed in exactly 17 hours and 7 minutes.  The event was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone taking part.

Guess the time was won by Anne Corbett with an exact guess of 17 hours 7 minutes and money raised from this amounted to £510 with £160 donations taken on the day.

The Harriers would like to thank everyone who took part on the day and supported the club by ‘having’ a guess at the time.

Club Opening Run – Saturday 8 September 2012

A good turn out of ‘old’ and ‘new’ members met for the annual opening run and group photo at the club rooms on Saturday.

The adults headed out via the park and Wilton burn over the hills, coming back via the fisherman’s walk whilst the junior section were lead round the park by Sylvia Grieve, Norman Taylor and Sheila Crowford.  A number of training drills were completed during the junior run and everyone enjoyed refreshments and traybake back at the clubrooms.
