Losing ain't our thing - Scottish Universities 10k Championships - Grangemouth 24.03.13

Grangemouth has been painted green. And no, not because of the BP factories, but because of an almost perfect display of domination by the haries.

After another ScotFail, the haries had to settle for a rather luxurious coach journey to the race. However the sight of shitty grangemouth soon wiped the smiles of their faces. It was grim, and the weather didn't help.

Haries AGM 2012/13 - 20-03-12013

Firstly, what a year the Haries have had! Thanks to everyone who has came along throughout the year and been part of this epic club!

Last Wednesday the long and lengthy process of selecting next year's committee took place in the Kilderkin. The Captain's reports, as well as year round-ups by James and Dilja, started off the night which was then followed by the launch of the AGM film. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6Ew1E9bI-c)

A Late KB 5 Report...

On a damp, drizzly and pretty grey morning, runners from around Edinburgh, and further afield from Glasgow and St Andrews unis descended on Kings Buildings for the Haries' second race of the year, KB5. The 5 mile race was being eyed up by the green-clad Mike Crawley who had his eyes on the prize of the course record.

Despite a few hiccups and a slightly disappointing turnout, the race went incredibly smoothly, and many thanks have to go to both our lovely race organiser, and all the volunteers who turned out to marshal, help with registration and manage the finish line.

10 Haries and A Bunch Of Charity Shop Clothes – The Mighty Deerstalker 2013

Upon returning from the mighty deerstalker in 2012, Neil Colquhoun boasted of how “wonderful” and “fantastic” this race was. Due to his enthusiasm for just about everything, many people didn’t regard this as anything special. However Haries, I can now confirm that the Mighty Deerstalker is as wonderful and fantastic as Neil made it out to be. So wonderfully fantastic that it brought Dilja to tears.

Over the Hill and to the Pub (With results)

Well Haries, I think most of us will agree that Over the Hill on Sunday was a huge success. As much as I’d like to write that we beat the oldies, unfortunately HBT have held on to the Over the Hill trophy. But heres how the day went..

With many haries and trotters taking part in Carnethy and/or a night out on the Saturday, not everyone was feeling fresh and fully prepared for the days racing. However, on a day which probably marked the height of the Scottish summer, and with the help of jelly babies and a very young HBT fan club, the brown and green contingent soon perked up.
