I have been monitoring the weather today to assess if we should go ahead with training tonight.The weather forecast states there will be sleet and snow showers coupled with strong / gale force winds with cold temperatures in strong wind.
I was looking forward to getting back to training tonight so it has with reluctance John and I have made the decision to cancel the training.
We will be back on next week, Wed 18th January at 6.30pm and for those that do the Saturday session with Mark should be on as normal on Sat 14 Jan. All parents have Mark's number if there child attends that session.
Happy New Year to all young athletes, parents, coaches and parent helpers at Calderglen Harriers.
Lets have a fantastic 2017 with more training, more racing, all the help and support we can get and make 2017 an enjoyable, successful and fun year for the young athletes.
Training back to normal on Wednesday 11th January at the usual time of 6:30pm to 8pm For those that never took up the option to pay membership fees through standing order, fees are now due and should be given to Sarah on Wednesday.
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.
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.
