This Halloween weekend was another great one for the club, with members representing Harriers far and wide.
Storm Brian proved no match for Harriers this weekend, with a number of personal bests to go round.
Kate Loach tackled the humid Venice marathon, taking in no less than 14 bridges to finish in a fantastic time of 3:37; coming third in her age category. Well done Kate!
Chiltern Harriers’ youngsters put in a superb performance at the South Of England Cross Country Relay Championships at Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday.
