Head Coach Gerry Reilly has provided a 15 week Marathon training programme for the 2011 Virgin London Marathon which will take place on sunday 17th april. The Marathon training programme for this years race has had to be adapted to take into account the earlier date for the race and is set up to make the most of local target events, taking into to account the cancellation of the Thanet 20 in 2011 - the normal 20 mile target race.
A brilliant run by Sarah finishing in 12th place overall, taking the prize for 1st lady and together with Barbara and Helen giving Harriers the 1st Ladies Team prize
A big turnout from the Harriers with some excellent times over a very challenging course
Strong turnout from the Harriers for what is a "challenging" course with excellent runs from Mark and Sarah ( following up her London PB with a 10K PB ! ). And good to see Brian running well again.
Another good run for Ray down at the sunny seaside albeit a bit windy!
Despite the windy conditions, some good results from the club members who took part in our May Bank Holiday race, particularly Nannette who managed a PB.
Congratulations to all 20 of our runners in this years London Marathon with some brilliant times. Congratulations to the debutants and to Wendy on her PB on her birthday! But pride of place must go to the stunning performances by Sarah, ten minutes inside the elite time and bettering her previous PB by over 8 minutes! And Barbara on her PB and at FV52 only 4 minutes outside the womens elite time! And well done to Joe completing his 16th consecutive London Marathon and 17th in total.
