Troon Tortoises Club athletes excel

Report by Keiren Mooney
An incredible thirty Giffnock North athletes crossed the finish line at the Troon Tortoise 10k on Wednesday evening (8th May). It was the Senior Endurance Championship’s fifth race of the competition and with that it saw high numbers make their way down to the seaside.

As the skies cleared, it turned into perfect conditions for running as the gun went off at half seven. The thirty athletes took advantage of the conditions and the flat course with personal times tumbling and personal bests secured. The first man through the line was Luke Chamberlain with a time of 36.54, position 17th, and he would be very closely followed by Jordan Orr who missed him by seconds with his time of 36.59. The ladies were in scintillating form too as Jill Smylie took the runners up medal with a time of 38.17. Again, there was a Giffnock North vest not too far behind her as Yvonne McNairn grabbed 3rd with 39.49.

A famous ‘Troon Chippy’ followed after the race for many athletes, ending what had been a very impressive and productive night on the course in fine fashion. A big well done and congratulations to all who finished. All eyes now turn to the next race, the Brian Goodwin Memorial 10k, which no doubt times will tumble once more.
