River Ayr Way Challenge

The RAW Challenge, now in its 3rd year,originated as a 2 day fund-raising walk, which seems a very appealing approach, as Catrine the 1/2 way point has a brewery-pub which I have now gone past 3 years “running” (well sort of). This 41 mile event is...

Great Scottish 10k, Sunday 5th September

Taking part in my first Glasgow 10K road race was, I feel a bit of mixed feelings. On arriving around 20 minutes later than I wanted to at the start in George Square, I had to try and find out from other runners where I had to start the race from as I could not find...

Paisley 10k

Sunday 29th August Nice conditions for this race round Paisley, bright and sunny with a stiff cooling breeze. The route was a loop around Paisley with not so much PB breaking potential as ankle breaking potential. We squeezed out from the narrow start up and down...

Field of Dreams 10k

“This is a wonderful, GENTLY UNDULATING (my capitals) road, crossing suburbia, then wetlands, then a peat bog, & joining a motorway roundabout at the end.” Thus goes the official route description, which succesfully sold the event to me! Then I met...

Helensburgh Half

Sunday 1st brought a warm,humid but surprise! surprise! dry morning in Helensburgh. The club was well represented by 6 Maryhill Harriers (forgive me if I’ve missed someone!) It was good to catch up with Chris after his Island -hopping. Always one of my favourite...

Clyde Stride

The Clyde Stride is a new event, a 40 mile trail race from Partick station to New Lanark, on 17th July aka Ferr Saturday. The motley crew of usual suspects plus many newbies, 92 strong- & not so strong- were briefed behind the station by Lee Maclean the race...

Kirkintilloch 10k

Six of us took part in the Kirkintilloch 10K last night (Thurs 17th June). It was a really warm evening and so I definitely felt that it was a bit of a struggle. Thanks to Mick who came along to ‘support’ us (thanks for the shoving and shouting!). The...
