Captain’s Report – December 2019

Captain’s Report – December 2019

December was a busy month, that all too soon rolled into January.

It started off with a record-breaking turnout of 34 Harriers at Victory 5m, almost double our usual number, only for this record to be smashed by Stubbington 10km in January. Full report to follow.

Chilly Hilly lived up to its name again, with gale force winds over Tennyson. Team work was required to take it in turns to shelter from the wind behind other runners. A number of Harriers finished high in the race results, with Charlie taking 3rd overall and right on the heels of 2nd place.

A number of Harriers took on the brutal Portsmouth Coastal, competing in the Half, Marathon & Ultra distances.
