RESULTS: Race Round Up 20-21 May 2017

There are so many races at this time of year, it’s sometimes difficult to choose what to enter, let alone keep up with where everyone is competing!  This week our runners met with trails, hills, sunshine and rain …not forgetting the mentally tough laps at the end of the Stirling Marathon!  It was victory for Stephen Porteous at ATRX 10k and 2nd Female for Elsie Macdonald.  At the Carluke 10k, Robert Morrison won 1st MV50 prize and in Stirling at least 10 Harriers competed in the inaugural Stirling marathon.  It was also Goatfell Hill Race and Dick Wedlock 10k.

Stephen with Lewis the Lion & Race Director of ATRX. Rumours that the Lion was involved in Stephen’s fall are unfounded.

Goatfell Hill Race (20th May 2017)

Full Results

Three Harriers took on this 15.5km Hill Race on the Isle of Arran.  Dry weather meant for good conditions underfoot, but with sections of road, trail, scrambling, and a tricky, steep descent the race is not to be underestimated.
Dave Dickson was 81st in 1:42:49 (running for Westerlands), Nicky Parker was 143rd in 1:57:49  and Martha Lovatt was 178th (29th F) in 2:07:31 .
