Gala Harrier Dianne Lauder took an impressive sixth place in the senior women’s race as part of the weekend’s Great Trail Challenge in the Lake District, representing Scotland in this prestigious international event.

And up in Forgandenny, Perthshire, Gavin Bryson won the Strathallan five-mile race in 27 minutes 49 seconds, beating his dad Mark again by a margin and following up his excellent sixth place in the Edinburgh Marathon 10k the previous weekend in a time of 35.27.

Several Harriers had been in action in Edinburgh over the previous weekend as well, braving the elements. In his first marathon, Rory Campbell achieved a splendid 3 hours 34 minutes, with Elaine Johnston also running the 26.2 miles for the first time and finishing in 4.55.

In the half marathon, Judy Scott and Lynn Taylor finished together in two hours, with Anne Purves finding the going tough but hanging strong in 2.31.
