Harriers in Good Form

Harriers in Good Form

The club has several new members this year and with many of the stalwarts of other seasons still running. Varsity has been putting up a pretty good showing in the various interclub events this year.

Shaw Baton Relay:

Varsity just held the Hull Valley Club to be second in this event. Peter Joyce registered very good time for the last lap and others who ran well were Bill Gaudin and John Ryan.

Dome Cup:

The Varsity team on this occasion were narrowly beaten by Scottish Harriers who had several star runners but did not team as well as Varsity. Fine individual performances were put up by Gordon Dawker, Peter Joyce, and Bill Gaudin.

Vosseler Shield:

The course for this race was a particularly arduous one this year, being a 2-lap course over Mt. Victoria totalling 8.6 miles. University won the teams race very easily with 94 points, thus regaining the shield.

This year is the club's silver jubilee year and the celebrations are to be held on the 27th July. A full programme has been arranged for the afternoon and the jubilee dinner will be held in the evening at Wakefielld House. It is anticipated that many past members will be present on this important occasion.
