November 2017 Time Trial
We had a brilliant turn out of 35 athletes for the final race in this year’s Time Trial Championship. The weather was cold but thankfully the ice had not affected the paths for the duration of the race. Well done to everybody who made it down for tonight’s race.
Tracey Lamont won the women’s race breaking the 29 minute mark for the first time, and John Burns won the men’s race in PB of 27:39. Gary Wood picked up the wooden spoon in a slower than usual time.
The full results with the winners of this year’s champions will follow tomorrow.

Miranda Richmond won the women’s race in 30:37. John Burns won the men’s race in 29:12. Peter Blackmore picked up the wooden spoon in an uncharacteristically slow time.

We had a smaller than usual turnout of 20 athletes for tonight’s time trial. Perhaps, the start of the school holidays and the rather strange weather for the time of the year had something to do with it.
That said, we had some great performances.
First male in a 26:11 was Lorne Crawford with 2 minutes off his PB and first female was Alison Murray in 29:19 which was a wee bit faster than last month’s time. The wooden spoon surprisingly went to Susan Stewart who is training for next week’s Clyde Striders Ultra Relay.
Thanks to Lynsey Sneddon, Anne Hughes, Ross Thomson, Tommy Sneddon and Andrew Steel for making things run smoothly once again.
