Craufurdland Capers Cracker

Heavy rain in the late afternoon and early evening failed to dampen the enthusiasm of 34 intrepid Harriers who competed tonight in the inaugural Craufurdland Capers.

First home in a net time of 27.03 was Daniel McConnell who just managed to pass Janice Millar in the last 100 metres of the 6.4K course. Janice, who had the daunting job of being first away had a tremendous run, beating her predicted time by over 2 and a half minutes and must have thought she had it in the bag with the end in sight. Close on her heels was Lindsay McMahon with a remarkable performance considering her pre race comments to the handicapper about how poor she was running!!

The fastest male and female performances were predictably Graham Cameron and Kara Tait in respective net times of 20.55 and 24.01 – new course records.

The handicapper did a bit of a diss-service to Laura McFarlane (nearly 4 minutes slower than projected) through having little form to rely on – sorry. Also Mike Corson (2 mins 25 slower than projected) mainly through him having over-hyped his victory at the Glen Urquart Highland games last month !! However we were all very happy to see his trophy.

The main winner of the evening was the course which proved to be interesting, challenging and safe and the members and friends who attended to compete and support and enjoy a very sociable night. We hope to repeat it next year. Thanks especially to Alex Craufurd for hosting the event and to the marshals and timekeepers who helped organise.
