Another week and another podium, this time for David Marshall (pictured) who won the Lochwinnoch road race on Saturday, a third win at the event. The 5-mile hilly course cuts along the fringes of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park before looping back towards Lochwinnoch for a flat out finish.
Also on Saturday, Ian and Isobel Lockhart (pictured) ran the Cape Wrath Marathon - the most North Westerly marathon on mainland UK. The extremely challenging, exposed route includes a climb of over 2,415 feet. Ian and Isobel were a 2 person team and completed it in 4hrs 18min 15sec.
On Sunday, Emma Mitchell, Gillian Emery (pictured) and Faith Griffen represented the Club’s Junior section at the Run, Jump, Throw Grand Prix in Livingston. A great event to earn some valuable experience and test their skills against their peers.

John Redding took a break from running this weekend, getting on his bike for the Etape Caledonia event on Sunday. The 85 mile route started and finished in Pitlochry, and included two pretty big climbs, the second of which over the shoulder of Schiehallion. John finished in 04:10:00.
Colin Sumpter and Thomas Gahagan took part in a competitive Low Port Primary Dads 80m sprint. A missed opportunity to wear the vest of LAC, gents?!
