Friday 28th June saw the 5th race of our Senior Endurance Road Running Championship of 2024.


Adding a bit of variety into this year’s calendar it was a chance to leave the tarmac for 5k as we took to the trails and compete in the Calderglen Harriers Festival of Trail Running.

 

We had 17 athletes take part on the night which started cool and windy, but as the gun went off the recent muggy heat appeared – as did the midgies!!

 

We had Mick, Andrew, Jim, Maryann, David, Brendan, Emma, Ross, Lucy, Gillian, John, Julie, Catherine, Angela, Emma, Ross and Gary take to the start line.

 


Not letting the conditions put them off, we saw strong running from everyone who took part!! And saw some brilliant results.

 

First over the line for MAC was Mick Cushley who was first in his category in 22:18 and 9th overall.

 


First female for MAC and indeed first female in the race was Maryann Milne in 23:44

 


We also had the following category placings.

Emma Smith 1st FV35

Brendan McDonald in his first race in a MAC vest was 2nd MV40

Angela O’Neill 2nd FV40

John Burns 2nd MV60

Gillian McCaffer 3rd FV45

Lucy Saez 3rd SeniorF

Well done everyone who took part!!!!
