On Saturday the 19th of March an army of craic and bold took to the stage in the ‘scenic’ Clydebank for a 5k.
The mythical hammer-wielding Alastair Thor’ Thurlbeck thundered home in a god-like time of 15.38 and 16th overall. Shortly followed by Gavyn in a PB of 15:41 (he was clearly eager to dish out twos to the other runners) coming in in 17th. Grant thoroughly enjoyed himself and came in in 15.57 and giving a cheeky thumb up en-route. Adam, Will, Tom Hartley and Zander all gave outstanding performances and came in sub 18 minutes. Sarah swooped in to claim the U20 prize in a cracking 17:58. The chase was on between Gage, Mark, Lisa and Katrina who all finished within 30 seconds of each other. A pelaton of Connel, Megan, Hannah and Lauren Cowan all achieved sub 21.15 times. Billie, who decided to sign up on the day (legend), came in in 22.02. Audrey and her dodgy pelvis zoomed across the line in 22.48 (probably desperate for paracetamol). Juliet continued her racing streak knocking 43 seconds off her PB finishing in 23.09.
Excellent performances all round guys, with many PBs to be had!
