Edinburgh AC Queens Drive 5K

Michael and I hadn’t realised the registration had been moved to Meadowbank so we were dropped off at Pollock halls. After realising we were in the wrong place we made our way down to the start near Arthur’s Seat and were kindly given numbers and allowed to run.
There was quite a strong wind so we were keen to get started. The race was on the road around Arthur’s Seat and the wind didn’t seem to be in our favour so that as you reached the top of the hill you were blasted by it. We were given a nice chocolate bar at the end which made all the effort worthwhile. Times were:

19 20:49 Duncan Ball
39 24:59 Sadie Kent (Thats me!)
52 27:25 Michael Greens
57 28:47 Julie Young

    ‘Quite a strong wind’ is rather an understatement, but maybe accurate if compared to the top of a Pentland. Although rather a short race for my liking, I did enjoy the downwind and downhill bits. Well done to 4 hardy Harriers and especially Julie who is running every single day this month! (I think Michael would have been at least ten minutes quicker without his polar bear hat!)
