Friday 3 January 2020 saw the Scottish National 3000m Indoors Championships at the Emirates Arena. 12 Giffnock North runners made the starts lists with 9 runners toeing the line.The tighter corners and more compact racing conditions of the 200m Emirates track made for an exciting evenings racing with decent sized crowd and great Giffnock supporters close to the action.
And it’s true what they say, the dry air of an indoor track was certainly a shock to the system for many after New Year festivities!
James McMurray of St. Albans AC produced the fastest time of the night crossing the line in 8:00.38 but excruciatingly , he just missed the Prize money available for a Sub 8 Minute performance
