Last weekend was the Monklands Half Marathon where Clydesdale Harrier Pamela McCrossan had an excellent run to finish as first female, first West District runner and first West District Female Veteran in a time of 1.32 over the hilly course.

The previous day was the Scottish Athletics Trail Championships at Falkland, Fife. The women ran first, running 10k over a hilly trail course. Marina McCallum had a steady run to finish 38th out of 48 in a time of 50.38. In the men’s race Hugh Laverty had a strong run over a 15k course to finish in a time of 67.01.

Last Thursday was the Polaroid Eyewear Helensburgh 10k (the first of four races). We had eight runners taking part. Fastest harrier was Brian Gallagher (36.11), followed by James Austin (36.31), Kevin Farmer (36.38), Pamela McCrossan (40.02), Bobby Young (42.55), Stephen McKee (48.36), Colin Gray (50.05), and Evelyn McKee (50.47pb).

The day before was the Whangie Whizz hill race which had Martin King putting in a strong performance against some good quality hill runners to finish 46th in a time of 38.55.

This Thursday (22nd May) is the second in the Polaroid 10k series at Clydebank. The race starts at 730pm on the service road behind the Clyde Shopping Centre. Registration at the Playdrome. Sorry, no entries on the day! If anyone wishes to help out turn up at the Playdrome and ask for Peter Rudzinski – we’re always looking for marshalls and people to help at the Start and Finish!
