The Abbey Dash 10k on Sunday attracted a number of Scots – and there were fine third-place finishes for Adam Craig and Beth Potter.

Adam clocked 28.45 for a strong PB that in fact takes the Inverclyde AC athlete into the top five in terms of all-time list by Scottish men for 10k on the road. Dundee Hawkhill’s Kris Jones was fourth in 28.47.

Leeds-based Beth, for her part, was at 32.05 – only two seconds outside her best performance for 10k.

A few other Scots results as follows: Ryan Thomson 29.13, Max Milarvie 29.28, Jack Leitch 29.39, James Donald 29.53, Annabel Simpson 33.30, Steph Pennycook 33.38, Fiona Brian 34.48, Jenny Bannerman 35.43, Sarah Potter 35.49. These are chip times.


Two Scots were involved in the British team which competed in the World 24-Hour Champs in France over the weekend.

As it happened, the GB and NI team didn’t manage any team or individual medals on this occasion but there were still some fine peformances.

James Stewart of VP-Glasgow recovered from a couple of issues to finish in 17th place after running 250.696k – that’s around 155.7 miles in old money!

Grant MacDonald of Garscube Harriers made his debut on the international stage in a GB and NI best and finished in 43rd place after running 227.734k.

Well done to both guys and their support teams and best wishes for the recovery period . . .
