Tale of two cities for Gala Harriers

Gala Harrier Dawn Grant took eight minutes off her best marathon time in a hot and sunny Paris, really enjoying her personal best run in an impressive three hours, 42 minutes and 30 seconds.

And in Edinburgh, the sun failed to shine, but Darrell Hastie put in a sparkling performance to come eighth in the massive field of runners in the Morrisons Great Edinburgh Run over 10 miles. His time of 55 minutes and 22 seconds was mightily impressive, while Anne Purves enjoyed the cool conditions to take four minutes off last year’s time, completing the route which winds through the heart of the capital in one hour and 53 minutes.
