Round 2 Borders League
Birkenhead Park, 18/11/2007

Sixteen Harriers travelled to Birkenhead Park for the second round of the Borders Road Running League. Borders League Captain Darren Blazier produced his greatest ever League performance by finishing 3rd overall in the highly competitive field, in a superb time of 29mins 39secs over the four lap, 5.5 mile course. John Earlston, continued his dominance of the MV45 category finishing 8th overall but easily first home in the category, while Tim Cahill produced another outstanding performance, finishing 18th overall and 3rd MV45. Sean McCormack was once again hot on Cahillís heels, finishing in 20th position in 31mins 33secs. Matthew Ashton and Steven McCormack also produced an epic battle, pushing each other all the way and finishing in 49th and 50th positions respectfully, with Ed Reid not far behind in 66th. Grahame Shone, another Harrier on his way back to form finished in a tremendous 88th overall, a massive improvement from the first race. Paul Thomas was another Harrier that improved considerably from round one, finishing in 140th position just ahead of the only female Harrier to run in the league this season, Carol Willgoose, who finished in a tremendous 144th overall, keeping her very well in contention within her age category. Keith Elliott and John Hickman also pushed each other all the way finishing in 161st and 166th positions, while Peter Smith who travelled from Poole for the race, finished in an excellent 173rd overall. With Alan Lucas in 198th, ever-present John Essary in 207th and Stevie Ward in 262nd, it was an excellent team performance overall.
