Press Report Week Ending 13th April 2014

Posted by Nobody on 17 April 2014

On Sunday was the London Marathon which had two Clydesdale Harriers taking part. Mark Barrow was running for charity so was taking the marathon distance at a more leisurely pace but Paul McKendry had a good run to finish in a time of 3.40.39 in warm conditions.

The previous weekend there was no less than two marathons. The first was the Lochaber Marathon which took place on an out-and-back course starting and finishing in Fort William. In appalling conditions some excellent times were achieved. Fastest harrier was Pamela McCrossan finishing as third female and first veteran over 50 in a personal best time of 3.23.38. This was followed by Hugh Laverty (3.27.28), Bryan Powell (3.50.51), Christine Duncanson (3.57.53 pb), Stuart Allison (3.57.55), Evelyn McKee (4.06.37), Steven McKee (4.07.56 pb – he took a staggering 50 minutes off his previous personal best), and Colin Gray (4.50.16). Pamela, Christine and Evelyn also won second female team!

The other marathon that weekend was the Blackpool Marathon  which had some excellent times considering the strong winds on the sea front. Fastest harrier was Kevin Farmer who had the race of his life to finish in a personal best time of 2.57.29, followed by Paul Carroll (2.58.44), Robert O’Neill (3.05.52), and Brian Gallagher (3.08.07).
