Greetings walkers and runners.

Sunshine greeted about 50 walkers and runners last Saturday to kick off the 2018 harrier season as they met at Centennial Park.

Most groups took in river tracks, some heading up the Clutha, whilst other groups took in the start of Doctors Point track and Graveyard Gully areas.

Peter Dymock lived up to his reputation, giving the W1s a good honest outing, out for just over two hours or so.

Nearly as bad as the faster runners, we thought maybe they had gone all the way to Roxburgh, but no, just to some gate out and back. Doctor Greg led former member Russell astray, although both of them should be old and wise enough to know better.

Meanwhile the slower running pack eased into the new season and, looking down at the footwear, it became apparent they had been supporting the local shoe shop.

All were back for afternoon tea pretty much on time, even if Merv left his container of sandwiches sitting on the kitchen bench. Guess what Merv had for breakfast, lunch and dinner on Sunday.
