Penicuik Harriers July News

A huge achievement for Gilly Marshall this month running the Montane Lakeland 100 – a 100 mile ultra tour of the Lake District fells in just over 37 hours.  The route covers some very technical terrain which is super tricky to navigate (especially in the dark) and has a drop out rate of around 50%.  We are extremely proud of our girl for completing this race and with such a great time!

The annual Scurry to the Sea took place in July with several of our members navigating their way from Hillend, up to the summit of Allermuir Hill, and down through Edinburgh to the finish along the beach at Musselburgh.  The race can be run in around 11.5 miles, but can be much longer if your navigational skills are not up to scratch!  A favourite of the club, the Musselburgh 10k, also took place the same weekend, with Harriers attending as always.

Our Thursday hill rep session has temporarily moved to the John Clerk estate due to the construction work currently going on at Hillend.  Club members are enjoying the change of scenery running hill reps in the field behind Penicuik House while appreciating that the Highland cows have moved premises!

If you are looking to join a lovely running community, our training sessions are on Tuesdays (speed sessions 7:15pm at Beeslack High School) and Thursdays (hill reps 7pm at Penicuik House).  All sessions cover a wide range of pace / ability and qualified coaches and jog leaders are on hand for guidance.
