Captain’s Report – July 2019

July has been a busy month, with two big Island races Brading 10km & St Georges 10m, both with good performances by Harriers.

This month has also seen Harriers attend international & national events, the first being the Island games in Gibraltar where Charlie won gold, and the ladies team won silver. Shortly after returning from the Island games, Laura Brackley then had a good race at the Asics London 10k.

Harriers have also been reaching new heights in Wales & beyond, with trail & fell races with ridiculous amounts of assent. These include the Pen y Fan Fell races, Snowdonia Trail races, Lakeland Ultra and the Andorra Ultra Trail race.
