Good luck to you all with the training and on the big day, and to everyone who is running or is still thinking of entering a spring marathon. If you missed out on London why not join those Harriers who have entered the Shakespeare Marathon Details being run on the same day as London or the more local North Dorset Village Marathon Details a week later on the 3rd May 2015. Build your mileage, join the Sunday runs from LDC 8:30am.
Runner of the Quarter - RotQ Details
The most recent RotQ award went to  Kevin Dowsett for his hard work for the club over the last 3 months, assisting with the Beginners Group every Tuesday, as Head Course Marshall at the club's Littledown 5 road race in September, for his effort at the Saturday local Bournemouth parkrun Details and his ever present support and voice on the monthly committee meetings. Well done Kev!
Club Captains
Look out for the regular monthly running reports from both the men and women's Captains - Steve Williams and Heather Khoshnevis with support from their respective Vice Captains - Luke Dowsett and Caroline Horder. Remember to chat to them on a club night or if you see them at any races or just send them an email. If you plan to do or have done an event that may have been missed off you would like to tell your own story in your own words of an event you attended or want to promote then drop them an email.
Top Cats and Dogs!!
Both the men and women's teams finished in the top half of the Dorset Race Race League this year so ensuring we are in the top league for another year, where we clearly belong!! DRRL 2015 fixtures  Why not enter a few races now...we hope to see some new faces out there in 2015.
Club Championship CC 2014/15 
Well done to everyone who entered any of the CC races in 2014 some huge turnouts over a variety of distances and terrains. Great work Phil. you can get your entries in for races now so look out for the 2015 race planner that I'll be sending out to everyone soon, so no excuse booking that holiday in the sun when you should be wadding through mud at the Beast or the Stickler. CC races 2015 Also keep an eye out for the CC awards night and social in late January - Date confirmed as Saturday 24 January 2015 in the Littledown Centre bar.

A big orange Harrier welcome to all new members who've joined us this year. With our growing membership, more qualified coaches and sessions three nights a week, every week, things can seem a bit hectic at times but the Littledown Harrier's friendly, social approach to good quality coached running means we are all moving in the right direction so thanks again to everyone, enjoy the Harrier Christmas meal/disco and we'll see you all out and about in the New Year.
Best wishes from Barry and your Committee
