TRAINING CANCELLED - WEDNESDAY 19 SEPTEMBER

Due to the current severe weather we have had so far today I have decided to cancel tonight's training.
 
There is likely to be alot of tree debris around Calderglen Country Park, I know train services have been cancelled so home time for parents might be a nightmare, rush hour on the roads might be worse and I don't anyone risking themselves to get their son or daughter to running if delayed getting home from work.
 
Also I don't want to put any young athletes or coaches at risk in this weather tonight. 
 
Saturday session still planned to be on and any changes Mark will communicate through Facebook group. 

Please spread the word.  See you all next week

Thank you and stay safe.

Aidan Hamilton has been increasing his participation and performance for a number of weeks doing a variety of parkruns.  This weekend he was on double duty with the 5k on Saturday and 2k today.  Both good times that he has put down and I am sure there is more to come.  The Rouken Glen parkrun would have been extra challenging as the Giffnock North big guns are back and always provide tough competition.  I know the coach and how hard they work at training always putting an extra gear.  Well done Aidan.
 
Cumbernauld 10k and 1k races - Sunday 16 September

From facebook group and text updates today we have 4 junior runners out competing in the various races today at Cumbernauld.
 
First out and first home Steven Cooper was 1st Primary 6 in the 1k race. This was quickly followed by the Primary 7 1k with Kai Wheeler achieving a brilliant bronze in 3rd place.
 
Last but not least 2 of the clubs under 17 Women, Lucy Saez and Ashleigh Moir competed and completed their first 10k with great results.  Lucy was 2nd under 20 female in 57:20 and Ashleigh was 3rd under 20 female in 57:35
 
It is really nice to be reporting on the success you are all having from working hard in training and applying yourself in parkruns and races.  This is proof we can participate and perform as Calderglen Harriers.  Keep up the good work and it will only get better.
