Christmas Guesstimate Run

29 brave Harriers took to the streets and trails from coach George’s house on Saturday, Dec 14th. This year no-one got lost, a tribute to the course marking and marshalling of Jody and Mark. Finishing times ranged from just over 20 minutes to almost an hour. Closest to their predicted time and overall winner was Haden. Congratulations, Haden! Another big thank you to George and Linda and family for making their home "running (and eating) central" and to Jody and Mark for measuring and marking out the course.

Merry Christmas and Hapy New Year to all Harriers, family and friends.
