Cambuslang Harriers held a Lindsays Virtual Road Challenge event earlier this month amid Covid restrictions, and even that was hit by the weather.
A total of 34 runners had signed up for the event, to be run individually between Friday and Monday, January 8 to 11, but due to icy conditions only 16 took part. This was reflected across Scotland, as many runners opted out, fearing injury on slippy roads and pavements.
The 16 who took part did so safely on their chosen routes and some even managed to post excellent times, particularly for seniors and Masters in the 8k challenge.
Four of the club’s senior men made the top 10 fastest times. Gavin Smith was second fastest in 24.30, Jamie MacKinnon third in 24.38, Craig Jardine was fourth in 24.59 and M35 Stuart Gibson was 10th in 26.15 on a hilly East Kilbride course.
With such close packing, Cambuslang were unsurprisingly the leading senior male team.
M40 George Pettit and M55 David Marshall (2nd fastest in his age group) and Jennifer Campbell (3rd fastest in W45) all did well.
Younger athletes also did well, such as the under-20 quartet of Ruairidh MacGregor, Holly Brock, Rachel Wardrope and Ana Bradley, the under-15 group of Finlay Robb, Jonathan Dow, Abbie McClue and Lucy McGrandle, and under-13 runner Emma Ritchie.
