Posted by Marie Rippon on 18 May 2016

Clydesdale Harriers have attended several races over the past few weeks

Sunday 24th April, Hugh Laverty ran the 2 looped course of Blackpool Marathon in a great time of 3:37:53.

Sunday 30th April saw several Harriers complete the Hoka Highland Fling 53 miles Milngavie to Tyndrum race in near perfect conditions.  First Harrier home was John Fox in a great time of 10:14:13 followed by Paul Broad (12:57:15) , Marie Rippon with a new PB of 14:09:31 and Tricia Stevenson (14:46:12).  For Paul and Tricia this was their first ultra and a fantastic achievement for them both.

Clydesdale Harriers were also represented by a Relay Team during the race, consisting of 4 runners  Christine Duncanson, Marina McCallum, Hugh Laverty and Stephen McKee.  Everyone gave it their all and finished in a respectable overall time of 9:44:03

Thursday 04th May saw several of our runners compete in the SVHC Snowball Race held in Coatbridge.  First Harrier was Pamela McCrossan in a time of 32:30 (3rd overall female) followed closely by Paul McKendry (32:47), Marina McCallum (35:59), Peter Rudzinski (37:50), Watson Jones (38:22) and Bobby Young (40:01)

The inaugural Glen Lyon Ultra was held on Saturday 6th May.  This turned out to be an extremely hilly course on old access tracks around Loch Lyon and surrounding glens.  It incorporated 5 water crossings and measured just under 32 miles in distance.  Hugh Laverty ran a fantastic time of 5hrs 50 min, ending a very busy few weeks for him.

Sunday 8th May saw the Walter Ross 10K held with a new traffic free course.  In very hot conditions first Harrier home was Paul McKendry in a time of 42:10 followed by Alan Dick (43:17) Pamela McCrossan 44:37 (3rd female), Marina McCallum (49:13) and Watson Jones (51:11).
