There was a Record Turnout at the Senior Endurance January 2017 Time Trial.
We had 42 athletes competing in tonight’s Time Trial race. That is beats our previous best by two since the monthly competition started in October 2004.
We had some great performance – too many to mention, and Susan Stewart won the women’s race in a PB of 27:23, and Ewen Cameron won the men’s race also in a PB of 23:53. Mark Paterson picked up the Wooden Spoon [The Jim Tracey Award] in a slow time on his return from injury. Well done to everybody who managed down for the race tonight.
Thanks to Irene Kerr, Anne Hughes, Lynsey Sneddon and Lesley Ross for helping out on what was a rather hectic evening.
The 2016 Christmas Time Trial took place on Sunday 11th December.
We had 21 athletes competing in this year’s 4 Miles Christmas Handicap on a fine December morning. Dougie O’Hare won the men’s race in 33:40 and Elaine Jamieson won the women’s race in 30:40 with Mae McIsaac picking up the Wooden Spoon (The JIm Tracey Award) in a time that would be easily forgotten. Well done to everyone who made it down to Strathclyde Park this morning.
Allan Cameron was voted Road Runner of the Year by his fellow athletes. A photo of Allan being presented with the trophy by Jim Tracey is attached. Well done Allan.
Thanks to Anne Hughes, Lynsey Sneddon, Margaret Hoolaghan and Mark Paterson for helping out.
N.B. The Christmas Handicap is a fun event and is not part of the Time Trial Championship for markers.
We had a great turn out of 32 athletes on a fresh autumn evening for the final race in the 2016 competition. The conditions were pretty good for the 4 mile handicap race. First female was Miranda Richmond in 34:24 and first male was Jim Tracey in 34:20. The Wooden Spoon was picked up by Nick Hughes who has a bit of an off night.
We had some great performances and this season’s winning places were decided on the evening. More to follow on this one.
Thanks to Lynsey Sneddon, Irene Kerr, Anne Hughes and Kevin Durnian for the smooth running of the race.
We had a fantastic turn out of 40 Senior Endurance athletes (possibly a record) at this evening’s Time Trial Handicap Race which was our first race on the winter route. The weather gods were with us tonight and the conditions were excellent for the race.
Peter Blackmore was first male (for the second consecutive month) in 27:28 and Gillian McCaffer was first female in 30:58. Unsurprisingly, Jim Tracey picked up the wooden spoon (The Jim Tracey Award) in a slower than usual time. Thanks to everyone who made it down to Strathclyde Park tonight.
Thanks to Anne Hughes, Irene Kerr, Lynsey Sneddon, Mark Paterson and Ross McLean for helping out on what was a busy evening.

An afternoon session has been added for those who arrive early. The programme is the linked document.

We had 17 participants on Tuesday’s 4 Mile Time Trial handicap race on what was a fairly dismal night as far as the weather was concerned. That did not deter our athletes from turning in some excellent performances.
Susan Stewart won the women’s race in 27:29 – 30 seconds faster than her PB for the course. Peter Blackmore won the men’s race in 28:46 – more than a minute faster than his estimated time. Angela Downie picked up thewooden spoon in a quite respectable time of just under 32 minutes. Well done to everyone who made it down to Strathclyde Park on such a dank and dreich evening.
Thanks once again to Irene Kerr, Wendy Kerr, Jim White and Jim Tracey for helping things to run smoothly once again.
In order to make the race more competitive and increase participation, the sub-committee decided to make the 3K Track Championship a standard scratch race and incorporate an age graded race in both male and female categories. There will be medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places (male and female) in both events..
This means that our fastest runners get to compete against each other and there is the opportunity for all race participants to compete on a level playing field, regardless of age. Everyone will start at the same time with it being clear who wins the prizes in the scratch event with the age graded times being calculated after race has finished. More details will follow about the age graded times calculation.
We hope this will encourage our Senior Endurance athletes to participate in this years club championship. Please spread the word to your fellow athletes and make this year’s 3K track championship race successful.
The MAC Annual Club Championships will take place at Wishaw Sports Centre on Sunday 11 September 2016.
The first event will be the Senior Endurance/Road Runners 3K Track Championship Race and those taking part should attend by 9.30am for a prompt start at 10am. Registrations open for Track and Field athletes at 10am in the portacabin by the track, with the first event of the day starting at 11am. A draft order of events is attached. We should be finished by 4pm at the latest.
A wee reminder too that everyone taking part must be club members and should make sure their annual membership is up to date. As always, we will require lots of helpers to ensure that the day is a success and would appreciate offers of assistance from coaches, parents and senior athletes with various tasks including timekeeping, placing and at the various field events.
We would love to see as many athletes as possible competing on the day. It’s usually lots of fun with medals and awards being presented at the club prizegiving night in November (details to follow). Home baking donations are very welcome too!
Due to the Inter Region Triathlon Championships being held at Strathclyde Park on 3 & 4 September the Parkrun has been cancelled that weekend.
The RRs Sub-Committee considered changing the date of our race, but voted narrowly in favour of a change of venue. We considered Livingston, Linwood, Pollock and Silverknowes.
Again by a slim majority, Linwood was the new venue approved by the sub-committee. Linwood is apparently a flat fast two lap course and the event takes place at ON-X Linwood, Brediland Road, Linwood, PA3 3RA at the usual time of 9.30 AM.Sorry if this causes you any inconvenience.
Joe Hoolaghan, on behalf of the RRs Sub-Committee.
We had 27 Senior Endurance athletes taking part in this evening’s Time Trial Handicap Race. The weather was relatively kind to us with just a fine drizzle to keep the runners cool. Tracey Lamont was first female in a PB of 29:08 and Dougie O’Hare was first male in 35:49 (not a PB). Jim Tracey picked up the Wooden Spoon (The Jim Tracey Award) in another uninspiring time. Thanks to everyone who made it down to compete.
Thanks to Linsey Sneddon, Anne Hughes, and Irene Kerr for keeping everything running smoothly on the night.
We had 22 senior endurance athletes competing in the July Time Trial on what turned out to be a rather nice evening considering the rain was lashing down just prior to the start.
Roddy Quinn won the men’s race in 27:08 and Tracey Lamont was first female in 29:46 well done to both of them. John Hughes picked up the Wooden Spoon (The Jim Tracey Award) in an uncharacteristically pedestrian time. Thanks to everyone who made it down to the park to compete this evening.
Thanks once again to Irene Kerr, Anne Hughes and Lynsey Sneddon for helping out and making sure things ran smoothly.
The club is running a bus to the Bute Highland Games for a club day out on Saturday 20th August. There is the 10K Road Race (not part of the championship) for those who want to compete and there are various other track races available for all age groups.
The bus is open to members, family and friends. The bus will be free, although a small deposit may be required to secure a seat, this is due to the large number of late call offs in recent years. Folk will pay for the ferry from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay themselves.
What we need at this stage is a note of the numbers who will be requiring the bus. Elaine Jamieson has once again kindly offered to organise the bus. If you would like a seat(s) please reply to the post on Facebook, speak to Elaine directly, or text her on 07951 960 469. Please spread the word.
More details about pick up points, times, and the return journey will be published a bit nearer the time.
A 33 seater bus (same as last year) has been organised for the Brian Goodwin 10K.
It leaves from the Electric Bar at 6.00 PM on Friday 17th June, which will get us to The Cartha Queen’s Park Rugby Club in plenty of time for the 7.30 PM start. The bus will be returning to the Electric Bar at 10.00 PM. The Boathouse Car Park closes before our return from the race so please do not park there if you are leaving your car.
If you wish to book a seat(s) on the bus please reply to the post on Facebook or text Jim White (who has kindly agreed to sort out the numbers this year) on 07725262878.
Seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
We had 24 Senior Endurance athletes competing in Tuesday nights May Time Trial on what was horrendous weather for a good part of the the time – high winds, rain and hailstones.
That said we still had some great performances with Phyllis Hands winning the women’s race in 29:42, her best run for a while, and Robert Pattinson winning the men’s race in a new PB of 25:56. Ian Young picked up another wooden spoon to add to his collection! Well done to everyone who braved the elements to take part this evening.
Thanks once again to Anne Hughes, Irene Kerr, Lynsey Sneddon and John Hughes for helping out on such tough conditions.
Given that the Snowball 5 Mile Race (Championship Race) in Coatbridge takes place on Wednesday 4 May, it has been decided that the May Time Trial which was planned for Tuesday 3 May should be moved to the previous Tuesday 26 April. From a coaching perspective it is not a realistic or sensible option to race on consecutive days.
So the May time Trial will take place on TUESDAY 26 APRIL.
Please note this in your schedules; the training schedule has taken this into account.
Registration takes place at the Coatbridge Outdoor Centre (Coatbridge Track) on the night. Pre-registration is not required. The race starts approximately 1 mile away at the entrance to Drumpellier Park so please allow time for registration and getting to the start line.
That is all of the detail available at the moment – if there is any more info we will keep you posted.
We held the March Trial, the first competitive one of the season, on a cold, wet and windy night at Strathclyde Park. That said we still had a really good turnout of 31 athletes taking part in the 4 mile handicap race.
Congratulations go to Allan Cameron who won the men’s race in an excellent time of 22:06, and Susan Stewart won the women’s race in a PB of 27:59. Peter Blackmore picked up the wooden spoon in an unremarkable time that would be easily forgotten. Thanks to everyone who made it down to compete this evening.
Thanks to tonight’s helpers too – Jim Tracey and John Burns who were on torch duty at the underpass, Anne Hughes for starting the race and timing the finishers, Brian McLinden for stepping in to the breach and ensuring we got the names of every finisher in the correct order, and Lynsey Sneddon for videoing the finish to back up the manual process.
The first competitive race of the Time Trial Championship takes place this coming Tuesday at 6.30 pm at the Boathouse as usual.
The Road Runners Sub Committee approved a proposal to change this year’s rules.
The December and January Time Trial results will not count towards the best of the last 3 results used for working out the handicaps. Given that these results are not part of the championship they should not count in the handicap process.
The times of Individuals completing a 1st and/or 2nd marker will continue to count for handicaps.
The new 12 month rolling results sheet has been updated with the December and January results highlighted for information only.
We had an excellent turn out of 36 Road Runners for last night’s Time Trial and we had a dry spell for the race!
Alan Cameron won the men’s race in a superb time of 22:46 and Phyllis Hands took the women’s trophy in 30:42, a full half minute faster that her estimated time. Dougie O’Hare picked up the Wooden Spoon (The Jim Tracey Award) with an unspectacular performance.
Thanks once again to Irene Kerr, Wendy Kerr, and Anne Hughes for helping out.
We had 32 RRs participating in this morning’s Christmas Handicap and this was our biggest turnout since records began.
Given the treacherous conditions because of the ice and frost, this annual event split into a fun run for the majority of the group with the small band of ‘serious’ (or seriously mad) RRs deciding to do the 4 mile race proper.
Emma Stevenson was first female and Tommy Sneddon was first male in the serious race, with Craig Mackenzie picking up the wooden spoon (The Jim Tracey Award). Congratulations to them for risking life and limb by competing in such crazy conditions.
Female 1st Emma Stevenson 26:28
Male 1st Tommy Sneddon 28:13 2nd Mark Paterson 23:38 3rd Craig Mackenzie 23;18
1st Marker Ben Smith 24:31 Alan Tait 24:42 Roddy Quinn 33:12
2nd Marker Alan Cameron 23:35
Back at the Electric Bar around 40 RRs voted Mark Gallacher Road Runner of the Year – well done Mark you deserve all the accolades for your efforts this season. It was also Vicki Wright’s birthday â€‹â€‹and she was presented with a cake by Tracey Lamont from her fellow RRs.
Thanks to Anne Hughes and Lynsey Sneddon for helping out once again.
The RRs Sub Committee had its first meeting on Saturday 14 November. There was an excellent turnout of 12 RRs. We discussed a number of areas including the rules for the competitions and the races for next season’s championship. Six races have been approved – 3 Parkruns (5K), Down by the River 10K, Tom Scott 10 Mile Road Race, and the Brian Goodwin 10k. The remaining 3 races will be decided at the January meeting. Please have a read at the minutes to get up to speed on the discussions.
We had 28 Road Runners participating in tonight’s final time trial of this year’s competition on what turned out to be quite a pleasant evening given the heavy fog earlier in the day.
Mae McIsaac won the women’s race in 30-58, and Dougie O’Hare took the men’s prize in 32-17. Well done to both of them and everyone else who got down to Strathclyde Park to compete this evening. Jim Tracey picked up the Wooden Spoon (The Jim Tracey Award) in another less than mediocre time.
There were some excellent performances last night, too many to list. However, a special mention must go to Clare Hughes who beat her PB and recorded 25:08, and is the second fastest female in the 11 year history of the Time Trial. Chris Macdonald also had an outstanding run, the fastest by a male athlete this season, in fabulous time of 21:33.
Commiserations go to Gillian McCaffer who was first female across the line but unfortunately took the wrong route and had to be classified as a DNF. She was awarded a miniature of Buckfast to help drown her sorrows
Tommy Sneddon and Tracey Lamont have won this year’s male and female championships. Well done for some fantastic performances throughout the year.
Thanks to Irene Kerr, Anne Hughes, Wendy Kerr, and Mark Gallacher for helping out this evening.
We had a superb turnout of 31 Road Runners for this months Time Trial. The weather Gods were good to us too as the conditions were excellent for our first Time Trial on the winter route. We also had 3 new recruits tonight and Alec Robertson joined us after a long lay off.
Angela Downie defended her September title and took another another 40 seconds off last month’s time finishing in 30:43. Chris Macdonald ran the fastest 4 mile Time Trial of the year in 21:43. Well done to both Angela and Chris for great performances. Well done to everyone who made the effort to compete tonight and continue maintain the Time Trial’s popularity as it celebrated its 11th anniversary tonight.
Jim Tracey picked up the wooden spoon (The Jim Tracey Award) in a time best forgotten, however, he did have a hard race at the Tollcross Parkrun on Saturday and we should not be too hard on him.
Thanks to Irene Kerr, Anne Hughes, Lynsey Sneddon and Peter Blackmore for helping out this evening.
We had 16 Motherwell AC road runners taking part in the penultimate championship race. The results are set out below.
It was a fantastic day for the club with Craig Mackenzie finishing 1st male with Nick Hughes not far behind him in 2nd place. Nick’s sister Clare Hughes was first female and Emma Stevenson took second place. Mark Gallacher was first male V40. Excellent performances all round.
The race will be the first of the day and will start at 10.00 AM prompt, so please get along to registration for around 9.30 AM and have time for a warm up.
The numbers competing in the 3K Handicap have not been great in the last couple of years (to say last year’s blanket start did not go down well is a bit of an understatement), so please let’s go for a bigger turn out this year. Given the staggered start and the handicap system, everyone has a chance of winning and no one will be embarrassed. Please spread the word and help make the 3K Handicap race a bit more successful this year.
After the race it would be great if RRs could stay behind to help out with the track and field element of the championships.
Joe is on holiday and John Hughes has agreed to step in to the breach and will be organising the race this year.
We had 22 RRs competing in this evening’s time trial, the last one on the summer course around the Loch. Again we had some great performances with Clark Pheely and Bobby Wotherspoon putting down impressive markers for next month’s race.
First female was Angela Downie in 31:29 almost 1 minute faster than her previous best this year, and Ross Burton won the men’s race in 24:41 also nearly 1 minute faster than his recent best. This month’s wooden spoon went to Dougie Waddell who was not that far behind the rest of the field.
Thanks to Irene Kerr, Wendy Kerr, Ewen Cameron, and Mark Gallacher for helping out this evening.
We had an excellent turnout of 31 athletes for this evening’s Time Trial. I am afraid the weather Gods were not with us and conditions could only be described as ‘quite wintery’. That did not deter our Road Runners and we had some outstanding performances including another PB from Craig Mackenzie who broke the 22 minute barrier by 2 seconds.
First female was Mae McIsaac in 31:47 and first man across the line was Ewen Cameron in 25:21 as he continues his comeback. None other than Jim Tracey crossed the line last to pick up the Wooden Spoon often referred to as the Jim Tracey Award.
Thanks to Irene Kerr, Anne Hughes, and Mark Gallacher for helping out in such wet conditions.
Weâ€™ve had a tremendous response this year for the bus to and from the Highland Games so Elaine has put together a list of the names and seats required so far. If your name is not on the list, or your numbers have changed in anyway, please let Elaine know (via one of the methods below) immediately as we need to finalise the size of bus very soon.
We has another good turn out of 27 at the July Time Trial. Apart from a slight breeze on the outward stretch of the loch the conditions were excellent for a fast 4 miles.
Again we had some excellent runs with Susan Stewart winning the female race in a PB of 28:54 and John Burns taking first place in the men’s race in 29:04 which was a minute faster than he has ran for some time. Elaine Jamieson picked up the Wooden Spoon (The Jim Tracey Award) after plodding round the loch in an unexpectedly slow time of 32:20.
A special mention goes to Craig Mackenzie who set a new PB in a great time of 22:16.
Thanks again to Anne Hughes, Irene Kerr and Lynsey Sneddon for helping out and making the time trial run smoothly, and to John Hughes for presenting the trophies.
This year’s Bute Highland Games (warning: website has a very loud sountrack) has been designated as a club day out once again.
The club will be running a free bus(es) from Wishaw/Motherwell to Wemyss Bay return. You pay the ferry and yourself into the games. As usual, family and friends are welcome and the bus is free for everyone going to the games.
The day typically starts with the MAC putting competition before we head for the games. There is a 10K Road Race which is very popular with the Road Runners, however, this is not a championship race so there is no pressure. Should you wish to enter, please fill in and return this form.
The Road Runners had a fabulous evening at the Brian Goodwin Memorial 10K at Pollock Park on Friday 19 June.
We had a near record turnout of 32 competitors in the race. We had a number of PBs, really too many to mention.
Clare Hughes broke the 40 minute barrier, only the second MAC female to go under 40 minutes in a 10K road race.
Chris Macdonald was first man home in 34:32 closely followed by Craig McKenzie (35:46) and Graeme Kennedy (36;18). Katelyn McGeever was second female in 45:57 with Gillian McCaffer third female in 52:17.
Well done to everyone for making it a memorable evening.
Following the timing issues at the Balfron 10K the race organisers have issued a set of provisional results. The Championship and League Tables were previously updated based on finishing positions which have remained unchanged; however, the finishing times have been added.
Following discussions between Peter Blackmore and some of those who ran, we have decided to publish the finishing places (without the times) so that we can update the tables. When the official results are announced we will publish them on here.

What a fantastic turnout of 32 Road Runners in a championship race. It must be a record! Well done to everyone, and special congratulations to Craig Mackenzie who was the overall winner, Nick Hughes who took 3rd place, and Clare Hughes who was first female. As ever there were too many memorable performances to mention in this post.
Here are the results that extracted from the official parkrun webpage. Two names have been added following an enquiry about runners who did not register as Motherwell AC.
We had 30 Road Runners competing in April Time Trial tonight. It was a lovely spring evening, although the temperature was starting to drop as the race started. It was the first Time Trial on the summer course around the loch, and we had some outstanding performance. Patricia Allen was first female in 34:23 and Kevin Durnian was first male in 26:44, with both Patricia and Kevin taking about 2 minutes off their estimated times. The wooden spoon (The Jim Tracey Award) went to John Burns for a most forgettable performance, however, in his defense he is in the final stages of marathon training and speed is not on his agenda.
Additionally, William Martin was presented with a cake by Patricia Allen to mark his 60th birthday. Congratulations from everybody at the club.
Thanks go to Irene Kerr, Lynsey Sneddon and Elizabeth Martin for helping out this evening.
