Tony Wayte had a fine morning out at the 7Rs trail half marathon round seven reservoirs in the Pentland Hills, just south of Edinburgh. Conditions were well nigh perfect for the time of year, and he was happy with his time of 1.42.40, 30th position overall, 6th MV50.
While the rest of us were taking on the cold and wet and mud of Scotland in November, Beth Scholes was a bit further south, taking on the San Sebastian Marathon in northern Spain, finishing in a fine 4.07.59.
Well done to Cathy, Andy, and Iain battling through the mud of Broxburn. In the men’s race over 8.1k, Andy was first home in 38.15, with Iain following in 44.06. In the women’s race over 5.4k, Cathy finished in 27.40. Not for the first time this season, the seniors were well and truly outnumbered by the juniors
Runners of all ages and levels of fitness are welcome at our club training and club runs on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays with some seasonal variation.

We have a lively and active Junior Harriers section, open to all between the ages of 9 and 16. Juniors meet on 5.30pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Taylor Park in Crieff.
The Club organises three races. In June, we host The Strathearn Marathon, a rewarding marathon in a beautiful Perthshire setting, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite on the Scottish marathon circuit.
In July we hit the trails to the west of Crieff for one of Scotland's most enjoyable and scenic 10ks. Full race information and online entry here for The Crieff 10k.
And in September, we organise a great hill relay race in the hills above Comrie - full race information here for the Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay.
