If you thought conditions at Falkirk on Saturday where bad then it didn’t improve any as three of our athletes battled through the races at Glentress.
The route consisted of one loop for the half marathon and two full loops for the marathon. The weather deteriorated quite badly on the second lap making it a tough day out for our hardy competitors.
Robert & Lesley are both training towards the west Highland Way race this year, Robert returning after his first completion last year with Lesley making her debut at the race this year.
Gavin Highgate 2:08:17 58th
Robert Snodgrass 4:24:24 15th
Lesley McKerrall 6:43:33 166th
