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.
The Scottish Student Sport championship medallists were as follows:
1 Andrew Carey (University of Glasgow); 2 Michael Sanderson (University of Dundee); 3 Nicholas Lightfoot (University of St Andrews).
1 Annabel Simpson (University of West of Scotland); 2 Emma Gill (University of Edinburgh); 3 Jimena Andrade (University of West of Scotland).
