Round the Houses 10k Results

There was another outstanding performance by a Scottish Masters athlete at the East District 10k champs.

At the Round the Houses 10k in Grangemouth, Alastair Walker clocked a remarkable 34:32 to post a new World Best for the M65 age group.

We understand that the Teviotdale Harriers athlete’s time took a full minute off the previous best in his age category.

Many congratulations to Alastair and family!

Fife AC’s Annabel Simpson set a new Women’s Course Record with 33:25 and Peter Avent of Shettleston Harriers won the Men’s race with 30:23. Owen Miller of Fife duly took the East men’s gold in second place behind Avent.
