January Parkrun

This Saturday sees a change in venue and we will be attending the one based in Victoria Park. The race starts at 9.30 am and I would suggest we meet around 9:00 at the start line. I've never been to this one but i've been told it's a fast course.

PARKRUN - SATURDAY 31ST DECEMBER

Despite the rest & low key festive training I hoped for a good turnout for last Saturday's parkrun at Strathclyde Park. We had an encouraging 5 junior Harriers in the last parkrun of 2016.  There was a head wind on the way back which seem to effect everyones performance.  First to cross the line from Calderglen Harriers was Chris in a time of 21:40,  closely followed by Fergus in 22:04, Patrick in 24:13 and just behind was Freya Kane in 24:18. A short while later Renee Conneff completed the line up in 26:01.
 
Well done everyone and keep it going. 2017 is the year for Pbs and all round improvement.
