There were Gold medals for Senior Rene Rogers in Discus, senior Kirsty Reynolds in 400mH, u20 James Donald in the 1500m and u17 Rachel Broadfoot in the 80mH. Rachel Broadfoot also came away with silver in the triple jump and there was a silver for Callum McCormack in the u20 800m. Niamh Robertson got 2 bronze…one for u17 200m and the other for 300mH. Finally there was a bronze for u20 Eilidh Reynolds in the 400m and one of our newer athletes Aidan Allen u13 got bronze in the High Jump and in the 100m. Good set of results…well done folks.👍😀
It was a good run for u15 Blair Scott in the East Lothian open on Friday night at Meadowmill running over 300mH for the first time this season. Blair clocked 46.23 secs taking over 1.3 seconds of his previous best and breaking his own Hawks club record in the process. Well done.

Dundee Hawkhill Harriers have been given the privilege of hosting the National Masters XC at Camperdown this Saturday. Entries are up massively with 591 entrants. We are looking for lots of help on the day. Catering will be provided for the athletes at Ardler community centre and a tea tent at Camperdown itself.

If people can hand this in to Ardler from around 11am on the Saturday morning (in labelled boxes if you want the container returned) it would be hugely appreciated.
