What a weekend!

Where do I begin?? This weekend started with the club championships at Saughton track. We had some fine performances in the 100ms, 800ms, high/long jump and shot putt. Lots of volunteers make this event happen so a big thank you to all the parents who turned up and helped out especially after they had been there the week before for the Harmeny v Corstorphine match.

Full results will be posted up asap.

Saturday afternoon was the second day of the Scottish Schools Track and Field Championships at Grangemouth and Harmeny had Tendai and Finlay running in the u14’s 1500m. Both boys had made it through the heats and in a fast final Finlay was able to win bronze with Tendai putting in a gritty performance for 7th place.

The sun was shining on Sunday for the bi-annual social event, this time at Foxlake. 48 kids turned up, ran around, got wet, ate hamburgers, and generally had a fantastic time. We had our annual awards ceremony sitting on the grass eating ice cream – what could be better?
