Weekly update: Self Transcendence series, Glamaig Hill race and big turnout at parkrun

On Wednesday evening Frances Wood was back again at the Meadows for the Self Transcendence series. Frances finished the 2mile race in 14mins 11 secs, and again 1st FV60.

Angus Gallie was at the Glamaig Hill Race on Skye earlier this month. Described as "one of the toughest races in Scottish hill-running", it didn’t disappoint. Angus finished 01:41:21. Angus put his effort into perspective against the hill-running 'specialists'. The winning time by Finlay Wild (Lochaber Athletic Club) was 00:46:46 - meaning that he was up and down the hill before Angus reached the summit! Impressive.

Another busy week at parkrun, where the Club had 19 runners across 9 different runs.

James Hammond was the quickest Linlithgow finisher this week, finishing Bath Skyline in 19:42. Rebecca Hammond also ran, finishing in 27:47.  

The biggest Club turnout was at Falkirk with 10 Linlithgow runners there to help celebrate it’s 8th birthday. Scott Hyslop was first home in 21:07, Neil Anderson in 21:33, Chris Duffy in 21:44, Angus Gallie in 21:52, Ian Boxall in 22:28, Malcolm Hughes in 22:38, Jennifer Newton in 24:10, Roddy Simpson in 24:48, Lorna Simpson in 25:04 and Sean Smith in 29:33. Elsewhere, Scott Cumming ran Edinburgh in 25:35, Mandy Cazes ran St Andrews in 24:20, Richard Wood ran Leicester Victoria in 20:18.

Our tourists this week. Ian Fyfe ran Ayr in 25:27, Michael Watts ran Northwich in 20:16, Jill Horsburgh ran Fort William in 25:59 (smashing the VW60-64 course record by more than 2 minutes!) and David Main-Reade ran Nautical, Winnipeg in 22:35 (3rd overall).
