The best time of the day was set by Chris McKay of Inverclyde who finished the course in a time of 15:37.  Jessica Bell of Shettleston Harriers was the fastest woman with a time of 19:23.

Unfortunately three teams were disqualified for fielding underage athletes.  Their times are included on the results for information only.

The full results are recorded on an excel spreadsheet at this link.

Thanks to the 25 officials who gave up their time to assist with a variety of duties, the 30 plus Marshals who remained at their posts until the last athlete was safely home and our members who served the tea and cakes in the refectory.

Special thanks to Katie Alexander of Achilles Heel for once again supporting the event and Julie and Gordon McGhee for the supply of cakes and buns.

Hopefully we'll see everyone back again next year where we are planning an earlier start to the race.  We'll keep you posted of course.
