Parting from the safe confines of George Square on the same morning, a Haries Division instead turned southbound away from the smooth grass of Glamis and towards the knee-deep bog and ankle breaking terrain of Wales and Snowdonia.
Tackling the British Fell Relays Championships last year with one men’s team after a prolonged absence from the event, this year saw the club send three teams (two men’s and one women’s) to this exciting race.
Here are the final set of results for this year’s Handicaps. The overall title of Club Champion (calculated by the lowest score from your best two performances) went to German Moshes – congratulations! Well done to everyone else who ran as well, we hope it was a fun and interesting race series to take part in.
The results of the second installment of our Harie Handicap series are below. Note the sprint photo finish between Patryk and VJ – anyone can win these races, so get involved. Thank you to everyone who raced, and don’t forget to come along next week to see who wins (maybe it could be you?) the overall title of Haries Club Champion 2014-15!

Congratulations to all elected, and commiserations to all who missed out on a place. It was heartening to see how much the Haries means to its members – there can’t be many clubs or societies that get 6 candidates for one position!
Courtesy of of our great Publicity Officer, Jimmy F. Dunn, we have a lovely video rounding up the many highlights of this academic year. Watch it below, and shed a wee tear of joy:
But fear not, for the year is far from over. We still have plenty of road and hill races coming up, as well as the small matter of Harie Holiday, not to mention ISLE OF MAN!
Well the last cross country of the season fittingly had it all, at least in terms of the weather, as what had been a gloriously sunny week until Saturday turned into a sad, soggy, mud-soaked Sunday. But we are Haries, and we were not to be deterred by such a simple thing as the weather. We endured. Continue reading National XC→
(This week’s race report includes a soundtrack, all for the sake of a terrible pun. I hope you enjoy it)
Valentines Day 2015 saw a small group of Haries take on something a bit more challenging than the usual cross country. We went out to the Pentlands to take part in one of the first proper hill races of the season, Carnethy 5 – so named because its course goes over 5 peaks, rather than the common misconception of 5 miles. Hill running can be brutally tough, and entering meant risking the well-being of our limbs and romantic evening plans. It was definitely worth it however! Continue reading Carnethy 5-O→
I’ll start with this breaking news from Cramond on Saturday:
Despite a history of rocky relationships with early morning park runs, Amy Bristow made it third time lucky as she completed the 5k course without throwing up in 23:19, knocking 53 seconds off her previous PB, despite the treacherously icy conditions.
An enormous congratulations is due to our Social Sec. The weather was certainly less than ideal at this week’s parkrun, with large ice puddles and frosty tarmac. Many legs quickly tired from trying to stay upright, but despite this, every Harie performed admirably and placed highly. Continue reading Amy B: Queen of Parkrunning→
