Weekly update: Coll Half Marathon, Forth Bridge 10k and parkrun

It was a battle against the elements this week for Linlithgow AC…

Jill Horsburgh was in the windy (with intermittent hail and vertical rain!) Inner Hebrides on Saturday for the Coll Half Marathon. The route, starting at the Calmac Ferry terminal follows the main road around the island, looping runners back toward Arinagour for the finish. Jill finished the race in 01:58:28 (1st FV60, 13th female). 

4 Linlithgow runners were at the Forth Road Bridge 10k on Sunday. The race, returning to the Scottish running calendar after a break last year, saw runners faced with +40mph winds. Alison Malone was first home for the Linlithgow women, finishing in 46:54 (5th FV40), followed by Claire Rice in 50:09, Lorna Simpson in 50:37 and Louisa Cockburn in 53:15. For the men, Martin Maginnis finished in 42:35.  

Another quiet week at parkrun, the Club had 5 runners across 7 different runs.
