Well done to the Under 13 boys trio of Alistair Crawford, Craig Stewart and Drew Gordon for representing the Harriers yesterday at the National Young Athletes Road Race Championship. For the 2nd year in a row this event was held Rouken Glen Park in Giffnock.
With a field of 57 boys in this 2.5K route it was won by Josh Kerr (Edinburgh) in a time of 8:47 and our Harrier's trio competed well to show the good progress they are making in the training sessions. Alistair Crawford was the first home with a time of 10:34, Craig Stewart was next in a time of 11:10 and following on from his last outing at the National Falkirk Cross Country, Drew Gordon put in another strong steady performance and achieved at time of 12:47.
Due to several injuries and other commitments other Harriers had to pull out of their races so all please get better so you are ready for your next race!
These are fine performances and with continued training and more race experience all of the above will become better and better and the club as a whole is very proud of their efforts in representing the Harriers
Any of the other young athletes that are interested in competing in these type of events please feel free to ask any of the coaches how to get involved.
