Whatever the distance or the discipline, there’s a good chance that a Harrier has been there, done it, and got the tee-shirt (or race memento) to prove it.

Carnegie Harriers

Great race report from Alan McGowan on the Scottish Long Coastal Relay.

On Saturday October 6th, 6 harriers took part as a team to compete in the challenging Scottish Long Coastal relay race (116ish miles) organised by Carnethy hill running club.

The race started at midnight with Egle Laurinaityte running the 1st leg of 16.6 miles from Kincardine to North Queensferry in an amazing time of 1hr 59mins, finishing close behind PH, Carnethy and LLV to hand over to Dave Cox. Dave kicked on, maintaining 4th place and ran a fantastic run over the tough route from North Queensferry to Dysart (21 miles) in a fantastic time of 2hrs 45mins.

Now nearing 5am, next waiting in the wings was new member Laura Muir who set off at a great pace, running the undulating route from Dysart to St Monans (20 miles), still maintaining 4th place throughout and running an awesome time of 2hrs 53mins. By this time fresh from his earlier run, Dave travelled up to St Monans to cheer on Laura coming in and to cheer on Neil Mclure who was next up for the gruelling leg 4 from St Monans to St Andrews (22 miles).

Neil pushed hard from the off and ran a strong run coming into the 'Home of Golf' in a great time of 3hr 30mins. Next up was Alan McGowan, taking on the fairly flat route from St Andrews to Wormit Bay (20.5 miles). Alan ran a consistent paced run for the first 15 miles and pushed hard on undulating final 5 miles to finish in 2hrs 36mins to then hand over to Alison Sutherland for the final leg from Wormit Bay to the finish in Newburgh (16 miles).

Leg 6 was a tough hilly, undulating route and arguably one of the toughest legs. Alison Sutherland ran well from the start and continued throughout to then be cheered on by her club mates as she neared the finish, crossing the line in a fabulous time of 2hrs 46mins. 🙌🏻👏🏻💪🏻

We finished 5th out of 11 teams in a very respectable time of 16hrs 31mins.

What an amazing day was had by all and would highly recommend putting more CH teams in for next year. 👍
