New Year’s Day Run

A total of 30 runners whos ages ranged from 5 to 83 years old as well as a few well wishers met on New Year’s Day to take part in the annual social run, although the weather was cold and underfoot conditions were tricky, spirits were high and everyone had a great time. At 10.30 am the ladies and mens captains (kirsty and Bruce Hughes) led the charge from the clubrooms over the James Thomson Bridge, through Wilton Lodge Park (where they were joined by Brian Gibb), up Wilton Burn and over the fields to Martin’s Bridge, they then regrouped on the Fisherman’s Walk to observe a minute’s silence in remembrance of Past Harriers sadly no longer with us. Next, a very muddy route back to Buccleuch Lane then through the park to finish at the clubrooms.
