Just to say thanks for putting on such a great event. Really enjoyed the course. Very well marshalled and so lovely to have so many folk cheering the runners on all around the course, felt like the whole community was on board! Fantastic organisation and amazing spread of food afterwards. I especially liked all the opportunities to donate to MacMillan, the food bank and encouraging reduced waste etc.
First and last time I will run the Penicuik 10k after the way my partner was spoken to by the older man at the entrance.
I registered early and collected my number, shortly after we went to make our way back in to the school ( I was walking behind my partner with our small dog) she was asked if she was running the 10k and politely replied no but was it ok if she used the toilet facilities and the older man looked her up and down and rudely replied “I guess so” Not very welcoming and put a dampener on our day out!! We also noticed later other people walked into the school without being questioned!! In all the years I’ve been a member of an athletics club I’ve never experienced such an unfriendly attitude.
I really don’t know what to say other than how sorry I am. I know the man you are talking about and this doesn’t sound like him at all, I can only hope that he was trying to make some sort of joke that obviously didn’t work. He was put on that role because he is so friendly and welcoming, you are right to have told me about it and I will speak to him.
Please accept my sincere apologies on behalf of Penicuik Harriers.
Major complaint here, 2 years ago I asked you to get a few bulldozers and take down Pomathorn Hill (see my comment from 14/5/17). I returned yesterday and THE HILL WAS STILL THERE! ???
Jokes aside, this is one of my favourite local races, once again excellently organised, everyone was so helpful and made us all feel welcome, beautiful route despite the undulations and THAT HILL, and a fantastic spread in the end! Even the weather was great!
Congratulations and thanks for setting up this wee race and hopefully will see you again next year!
Thanks Aris! I love a comment that starts with ‘Major complaint here’ 😀
I have enquired about having the hill flattened as I am asked to do every year but it’s a no, there is no way of flattening it. It has been there longer than the 36 years that our race has been going up it so it gets to stay. We all just have to learn to ‘enjoy’ it and I know for sure that you certainly won’rt forget it.
I’m so glad that we are one of your favourite local races – the club members put in so much effort so I’m glad that it pays off.
Hopefully see you next year!
Many thanks to all those involved in organising and helping out yesterday. Great event and fantastic hospitality afterwards.
Thank you so much – it’s a massive team effort but worth it when everyone enjoys our race so much 🙂
Great well organised race. Pomathorn Hill as tough as I remembered from the last time I ran this race, about 33years ago.
Thanks Bob! How amazing to run it again after a 33 year gap 🙂 Lovely to meet you too. Susie x
Thanks to all the organisers and supporters! First timer – I didnt know a soul but still got plenty of encouragement and claps throughout. PLus got lovely homemade marshmallow at the end for smiling. Tough course well orgainised 🙂
Thanks Una, so glad you got lots of support – our marshals have a reputation for being very encouraging 🙂 The marshmallow was made by Carrie who was also running in the race 🙂
Can’t do anything about the toughness of the course, but have heard a few people got PB’s yesterday – I’m sure that’s down to the marshals!!
Hope to see you next year,
Once again another fantastic day. Many thanks to Susie and the team.
See you next year.
Great David – glad you were part of it!!
Great well organised run as usual, however the man that was running next to me collapsed just after 9k hope he is ok.
The man who fell is fine. A bit battered and bruised but otherwise okay.
Thanks for your concern.
Excellent race, first time doing but will definitely be back. Very well organised with supportive and encouraging marshals. Superb event all round, my thanks to all involved in the organisation and to those who ran. The event is a credit to Penicuik Harriers even with the inclusion of “the hill”. Lived in area for 10 years and never thought about joint a running club i May well do so now.
What Neil said! Fantastic event – my first too and hopefully not last. Brilliantly organised. Huge thanks and congratulations to all those who helped from the brilliant marshals to the wee boys and girls handing out tablet at the end! Amazing. I might just join too.
Thanks to all for a great day today, my first time doing the race and my first Road 10k. That hill though 🙂 thanks to the marshals a great job. will be back next year and must add some hills into the training plan.
Thanks Paul 🙂
You won’t forget Pomathorn Hill for a while!!
Thanks Neil 🙂 The kids are club members kids – it’s a whole family involvement thing on race day!
Hi Neil, thanks so much for all of your kind words!! The club members make it what it is with their encouragement and entusiastic support 🙂
Please come along to Harriers, Tuesday 7pm at Beeslack 🙂
A well organised race with great marshals and a special mention to Yan the tail runner who kept me motivated the whole way round and cheered me on to a sprint finish.
So Sorry Ann but I have only just found your comment! I am so glad that you enjoyed our race, as a club we are very proud of it. Hope to see you again next year. Susie
Amazing race, excellently organised with great support all the way! Not much you can do to further improve it. Well maybe one thing. Hire a dozen of bulldozers and take down THAT HILL. 😀
So sorry Aris but I have only just found your comment! Glad you enjoyed the race, the club members pride themselves in the marshalling – very enthusiastic! You are not the first to ask for something to be done about Pomathorn Hill.
Brilliant race – look forward to it every year. That’s 11 in a row I have done this and that hill gets no easier. Well done to all the organisers and runners today. See you next year.
Thanks Michael, sorry but your comment escaped me and just seeing it now. If I am there then you need to be there, is that not how this works?
