Just 4 athletes made the trip to Dundee for this hilly (and usually windy) road race. This race provides a challenge not to be underestimated with a course profile that would not look out of place in the summer hill racing series.
Some good individual and team performances and a good spread of cake after made for a productive morning. John Redding was first home in 62:14 for 8th place overall. Angus Gaille then led the LAC train home with the gold striped athletes taking places 29th, 30th and 31st (Scott Hyslop, 69:22; Malcolm Hughes, 69:43).
With a close grouping of finishers, LAC took the silver in the team prize.
Well done to all on a good mornings work
Earlier in October, Malcolm Hughes and Doug Robertson flew to Amsterdam for their annual marathon. both put in sterling performances (3:14:49 and 3:26:13 respectively) to add to their standings in the club championship league tables. Other marathon performances have now been included.
results below now include for templeton and the marathon event (I don't believe that there are any more marathons this month)
Club championship current standings after 11 events (top 5)
So as you can see it really is close at the top, particularly with the handicap series with only 1 more event to go. you have 4 more attempts at the falkirk parkrun. With Jill and Alison neck and neck i 3rd and only 1 point separating Scott and Gerry at the top it looks like its all to play for. Angus has also pulled himself up into joint 3rd place and is also in with a shout at the handicap series.
Parkrun scores and therefore official final results will be announced and the club christmas dinner and prize giving on saturday 13th December.
