Templeton 10mile & Marathon

posted 2 Nov 2014, 14:31 by John Redding   [ updated 2 Nov 2014, 14:31 ]

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)

Female                                                                                 Male

  1. Hilary Stocks                       498pts                               John Redding                   500pts

  3. Jill Horsburgh                      396pts                                Scott Hyslop                    490pts
  4. Alison Marshall                    394pts                                Angus Gaille                     490pts
  5. Charly Fortune                     300pts                                Gerry McArdle                  485pts



Female                                                                                 Male

  1. Hilary Stocks                       499pts                               Scott Hyslop                   496pts
  2. Jennifer Newton                  496pts                                Gerry McArdle                 495pts
  3. =Jill Horsburgh                    396pts                                Paul Dudchenko               487pts
  4. Alison Marshall                     396pts                               Darren Dick                     485pts
  5. Charly Fortune                      297pts                               Angus Gaille                    485pts

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.
