Kirkintilloch 10k

Six of us took part in the Kirkintilloch 10K last night (Thurs 17th June). It was a really warm evening and so I definitely felt that it was a bit of a struggle. Thanks to Mick who came along to ‘support’ us (thanks for the shoving and shouting!). The...

Ben Sheann Hill Race

Sarah and myself braved the scourge of a Scottish summer (midges) to run Ben Sheann on Wednesday, the course is 2 ½ miles with 1400ft of climb at Strathyre. The course was changed from last year due to tree felling on the side of the hill, the new course missed out...

Polaroid Vale of Leven 10K

On Sunday 13 June I ran the Vale of Leven Polaroid 10k. It was the first time I had attempted one of the Polaroid series routes and was warned there was a hill – yikes! The weather was, well, ‘quite wet’ at the beginning but later cleared to become...

Durisdeer Hill Race

I drove down to the lovely wee village of Durisdeer for my second go at this race on Saturday. This is a cracking race with a great route over some pretty tough ground, the descent down to the Dalveen Pass is very steep, over heather clad scree. The col around the...

Stirling Triathlon

Despite early registration times (6.15-7.30am) and a horrible hill in the run section, I would thoroughly recommend this race. It was well organised and hosted three events over three distances: Junior, Novice and Sprint. I did the sprint event (which can also be...

Polaroid 10K at Dumbarton

Four Maryhill Harriers turned out on a very warm and humid night to contest the Dumbarton 10k. There was a great turnout with 794 finishers which led to a congested start, but it all levelled out pretty quickly. A few of us felt the race came just too soon after last...

Edinburgh Marathon 2010

Sunday 23 May 2010 Three of our very own Marydolls took part in the Edinburgh marathon and Scottish half marathon on Sunday 23rd May 2010. Julie and Jessica took on the grueling 26.4 miles while Paula whizzed round the half. It was a great day although it was really...

Polaroid 10K at Helensburgh

The course was changed slightly from previous years making it more hilly in the first 2k, a very warm night made it more testing for the runners, but the two Maryhill Harriers who competed acquitted themselves well: Mick McCartney 39.04- 90th (M50 -15th) John Weir...

Polaroid 10K at Clydebank

The conditions for this race were perfect with a slight wind and very cool. Three Maryhill Harriers competed, John Weir improving on his Helensburgh effort inching closer to his sub 40m target with 40.17-117th (M50-12th), Chris Hever getting a welcome PB in 46.49...
