 Report from Yvonne McNairn

Sunday 19th March saw no less than 24 Senior athletes ascend upon “sunny” Alloa for the 35th Alloa Half Marathon.  The weather did not look promising for race day and it certainly didn’t disappoint! In true Scottish style, we encountered every season in a matter of hours as the race progressed. Rain, wind and glorious sunshine kept us on our toes throughout. A tough course and tough weather was not for the faint hearted. First in for the ladies, and 6th overall, was Jill Smylie in a time of 1.23.40 and first in for the men was Scott Wilson in a time of 1.23.16. The day was littered with PBs and a great day out was had by all! 

Well done to all who ran.

and from Stuart Macdonald …. at the Loch Katrine Running Festival

Ricky Saez and Stuart Macdonald ran the Marathon at the Loch Katrine Running Festival on Sunday 20th March. A beautiful road route along the north side of the Loch, out to Stronachlachar and back. Both Ricky and Stuart are doing the Fling Race in April which is a 53m race on the West Highland Way so this was to an extent a training run for the boys but that didn’t stop Ricky achieving a 2min PB with 3hrs 50mins…given there was over 1000ft elevation and cattle grids Ricky’s PB is even more impressive. The route is traffic free and the very local and intimate made for a great day out for the lads.

Well done to all !
