Teviotdale Harriers AGM

Teviotdale Harriers – AGM

The annual general meeting of Teviotdale Harriers will take place on Thursday 5th September at 7:00pm in the Harriers Clubrooms.

Under normal circumstances a notice is displayed on the notice board in the clubrooms asking for nominations for office bearers but as the clubrooms are out of bounds we are unable to follow this procedure. Anyone wishing to propose someone for one of the roles (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Committee etc.) within the club should send their proposal along with the name of a seconder to club president Alan Coltman HERE.

captains run 2019

On 3rd August, Rory and Ishbel hope that many Harriers members and their friends (16 & Over) will be able to join them to celebrate their season as Club Captains.


The now annual Captains Run and Social has been organised by Rory and anyone who wishes to take part could you please email him – roryanderson@ymail.com. This is essential so he can prepare for the correct number of people.


The plan is to meet, ready to run, at the Haugh at 3pm, where bags (alcohol, towel, change of clothes etc.) can be dropped off.


There are two loops 4-mile & 8-mile and both finish ‘Up the Dean’ at Glenburn (Rory & Jades house).


Your bags will magically have reappeared here and there are 3 showers available for anyone sweaty enough who may require one (there is also a nearby burn if you prefer).


This is a BRING YOUR OWN DRINK!!! event and weather dependent there will either be a BBQ or pizzas to eat.

“Over the Moon,” Welsh does club and country proud

Colin Welsh in his GB & NI vest

Colin Welsh completed his World Masters adventure with an 11th place finish in the 1500m writes Bruce Hughes but after competing in two world finals, he’s understandably; “over the moon.”

The eight staging of the biennial indoor championships for veterans aged 35 and over, saw participants from every corner of the globe convene on Toruń, Poland for seven days of fierce competition.

The medieval Polish City, famous for its Museum of Gingerbread, was the destination for Teviotdale Harriers Welsh. This time racing in his Great British and Northern Ireland vest, he tested himself on the track against some seriously sharp and seasoned runners.

“The standard was obviously high,” explained Colin. “But to be qualify for two World finals at the same meeting and then be in the mix in those two finals, I’m over the moon.”

Four races in four days may have taken its toll but that’s exactly how Colin would want it; “On reflection, now the dust has settled and I’ve had a couple of pints (it’s important to rehydrate), my legs are in bits, my bodies in tatters but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

The only picture I could get from Colin

“It’s been an amazing experience and I’m already looking forward to Venice in September for the European Masters. I’m hoping for hotter weather though as its been snowing here.”

Not sure how much snow affects and indoor event, but Colin was very warm with his appreciation of everyone who offered encouragement whilst he’s been away; “support from home has been unreal and I would like to thank everyone for their messages.”
