Season Finale at Battery Park

There was a large turnout for the Harriers Bill Elder Road Races with 107 athletes competing over the Junior 1km and Senior 10km races.

It was guest runners who filled the top 3 places in the Men’s race with Inverclyde AC’s John Bell in outstanding form with a spectacular 31.06  to take top spot, he was followed by Cambuslang’s Alasdair Campbell, and Glasgow University’s Johannes Arens.  But for the home clubs Steven Campbell his 4th spot was undoubtedly  more important, as it meant that he was to claim the overall GGH Champions title in the final event of the 11 race championship.

Chloe Simpson smashed  her PB by almost 2 minutes to go under the 40 minute mark to win the ladies race, but she was made to work  for her win by Sue Hewitson who also produced an outstanding run, beating her best by 84 seconds.  In 3rd was Claire Monaghan, who’s consistency throughout the long season ensured her the Harriers ladies overall  champions title for 2018-19.

It was a record turnout for the junior 1km race (1 lap of the Battery Park) with U17 athlete Harry McGill as expected running clear for the win.  The under 15s were much closer with Harris Morrison doing enough to hold off Ben Campbell and Shaun Wiseman.  Ava Beaton was quickest girl around the park closely followed by Katie Johnson. It was especially encouraging to see 10 of the girls all going under 4 minutes.
