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.

Neil's super fantastic social report: SU Ball (31/1) and BUCS (2/2)

Well well well folks…what a week!

If that week were an athlete it would be Killian Journet, combined with Usain Bolt, mixed with just enough Mo Farah, in the body of Jess Ennis with the combined strength of Chris Hoy and Milo of Kroton…in short, it was epic!

The SU ball saw the finest turn out of well dressed folks at an event so paradoxical you couldn’t help but laugh your face off at every turn:

BUCS Cross-Country Championships 2013 - Leeds

Friday the 1st February saw the Haries descend upon Leeds for the BUCS cross-country championships. A total of 30 runners and a handful of supporters made the journey down south and spent the night carb-loading in Pizza Express in prep for their biggest annual race of the year the following day.

An early rise was soon sorted with an excessive amount of porridge pots and coffee, before the Haries made tracks to Boddington Hall playing fields, just North of the centre of Leeds.

Five men went to buy a tent

In the beginning there was a tent. And in this tent was warmth, tranquillity and sanctity from the elemental horrors which ravaged the earth outside of the tent.
Thus, six brave Haries took to the fields of Cupar in search of this hallowed object that might provide them with some protection in races to come. Little did they know they would return not only with ideas of holy self expanding tents but also bronze medals, forged in the ice and clay of Cupar’s most treacherous fields.

Scottish Universities XC Championships 17/11/12 - The Future's Bright, The Future's Green...

A week after dominating Braid Hills cross country, the Edinburgh University Hare and Hounds set out to do exactly the same at the Scottish University XC Championships. The Haries are owners of the women’s team title after claiming it back last year from Dundee University after they claimed it in 2010. The men’s team title has however been in their hands for the past five years and overall the Haries have never lost the championship cup since its introduction to the competition in 2002. Therefore there were big expectations when the green army arrived in Stepps, Glasgow on Saturday 17th of November.
