Great year lies ahead for harriers
This year promises to be another big year for Strathearn Harriers, with members planning an exciting series of races and events.
Plans are already under way for the Strathearn Marathon under the new leadership of Cathy Tilbrook, which will take place on June 10, with a free prize draw giving away a place to Mark Ashby.
The marathon is growing in popularity every year and the club looks forward to welcoming back many of last year’s runners to what has been described as “one of the best courses in the UK”.
Entries for the marathon are already open and can be made online via the club website.
Meanwhile, the famous Crieff 10k will be run on July 9, and the club’s other race, the Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay – now firmly established as one of Scotland’s best hill relay races – will be run in September.
January will see members taking part in cross- country races in Broxburn, and at the Devil’s Burdens hill relay in Fife, with five teams taking on the challenge over the Lomond hills.
The annual ceilidh and prizegiving in January will celebrate another successful year.
The new winter championship continues with cross-country, trail and road
