There were great runs for two Linlithgow runners at the Tom Scott 10 mile race on Saturday in Strathclyde County Park. David Marshall was delighted to finish in under the hour with a splendid 59:41 while Roddy Simpson finished in 1:22:34.
David Dalmau ran the Glasgow-Edinburgh and was sitting 11th overall when knee problems forced him to pull out but he is looking forward to running it next year.
