There were top performances at the Scottish 10-Mile Champs at the Tom Scott Road Races – and that is reflected in our Road Race Grand Prix ‘shares’.
No fewer than ten athletes clocked times inside the A and B standards for the 10-Mile Champs at Strathclyde Park.
Following the five-event Road Race GP series, we will allocate £4000 in prize-money to those who have hit certain times across the races.
Encouraging Scotland’s better athletes to compete in Scottish National Championship events is the goal of the Road Race GP – to help raise overall standards in road running.
The shares achieved by six men and four women from the 10-mile Champs are as follows:
Men A Standards:
Hamish Hickey (Central AC) 49:11; Fraser Stewart (Cambuslang Harriers) 49:14; John Bell (Inverclyde AC) 49:36
Men B Standards:
Michael Christoforou (Cambuslang Harriers) 50:15; Kenny Wilson (Moray Road Runners) 50:22; Ryan Thomson (Cambuslang Harriers) 50:54
Women A Standards:
Natasha Phillips (Dundee Hawkhill Harriers) 54:48; Virginie Barrand (Metro Aberdeen) 54:58
Women B Standards:
Naomi Lang (Carnethy HRC) 56:48; Sara Green (Gala Harriers) 56:59
