Jamie Burns has been selected to compete for Scotland for the first time in the Welsh U/20 International where he will race over 1,500m on the 24th July in Cardiff. Competing for your country is a great honour and we send our congratulations to Jamie and his family on this great news. This is the 2nd U/20 from the club to be selected to represent Scotland this year, it is testament to Jamie, who has graced the club colours from the u/13 age group. Long term development is important for all of our athletes and Jamie’s hard work has been rewarded.
Club members have been competing throughout the UK again this weekend in a number of events. In the Highgate ‘night of the 10,000 metres’ five club members were in action. Fionnuala Ross, after a recent spell of warm weather training, once again pulled on an international vest to represent Ireland in the European Team Championships running a time of 34.25.78. English internationalist Ben Johnston ran 30.33.88, Scottish internationalist Mike Deason ran 31.24.87 and Scottish Masters champion Avril Mason ran 35.50.45. The final Harrier to make the trip was Ruth Joss who ran a PB of 37.48.81 for her first run over 10,000m on the track.
On the other side of London a number of Harriers were competing in the British League for Glasgow. Matthew Turner had a double reason to celebrate, running PB’s over 3,000m S/C (9.31) and 5,000m (15.18). Young U/20 athlete Lewis Raeburn also recorded a PB over 5,000m (15.30). Full results will become available later this week.
On a more traditional surface for Scotland, Gary Turner competed at the Luss Highland Games winning the 800m and placing 3rd over the mile.
Marc McColl was also in racing at the Girvan Half Marathon on Sunday – good to see you back in action. Results to follow. Finally, David Woods and his sister, Katie both recorded PB performances over 1,500m last week at the Grangemouth open-graded meetings.
