Captain’s Report Jan 2019

Belated welcome to 2019 and specifically to all out new members – a great start to the year to see such a high membership, and also welcome to all the new Jog Scotland recruits – your journey is just beginning and you have no idea where it will end.

Both the Hill & Trail Championship and Grand Prix have now commenced and it is good to see some new names on the leaderboard. Having actively participated in this in the last few years, I for one am taking a bit of back seat this year to concentrate on my own running goals, but it is a good way to put a little bit of competitive spirit between club members.

The annual club awards night was held at Casa Mia on Friday 18th January, congratulations to Andy Beattie and Caroline Moles our Club Championship winners from the Moffat 15, Team Wood – Chris and Nicky – each collecting Performance of the Year and Grand Prix winners for 2018. Most importantly 2 fantastic winners of Most Improved Harriers to Gavin Collingwood and Olga McCready. Steve Head was recognised at the end of last year by Dumfries & Galloway Council for his coaching work and we re-presented his trophy for such a great accolade. He commits so much of his spare time to the Harriers and individual members from training plans, training runs, coaching sessions and much more, and we have all benefitted enormously from this over the years.

Tuesday and Thursday nights have been really well attended, lets keep up the club spirit in these runs, and for any new members, or members lurking in the background we are keen to encourage attendance by one and all – just remember to bring your Hi Viz vests.

Onwards into 2019

Carolyn and Doug
