Luke Caldwell made a superb marathon debut in America to run well inside the Team Scotland qualifying standard for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Luke clocked 2:11.33 as he placed seventh at the Houston marathon to go straight in at fifth on the Scottish all-time list.

It was a run which was agonisingly close to the GB World Champs standard for Oregon – as he missed it by three seconds.

But he was well inside the Team Scotland standard for Birmingham which is set at 2:15.12.

The 30-year-old, who is on the Scottish Athletics marathon project, competed on the track at Glasgow 2014 in the 5000m and 10,000m.

Many congratulations to Luke and his coach.


There were indoor events in Glasgow and Aberdeen over the weekend.

Pole vaulters gathered for the Sky High meet and results are online on the Event section page here 

And in Aberdeen the local club hosted an indoor Open Graded at the Aberdeen Sports Village.

Thanks to all involved in these events and to the volunteers and Officials who made them happen.
