Two of us made the trip to Strathclyde Park for the Tom Scott 10 mile road race. This race incorporated the Scottish and West District 10 mile championship, with a high-quality field. Race conditions were excellent, with just a hint of a headwind down the west side of the loch. The race was won by Tewodle Mengisteab of Shettleston Harriers in a time of 50.49.
Our times were a bit more modest, but we were both very happy with the results. I clocked 68.26, while Mark clocked 79.34.
It's a really good event - it's a good course, well organised, and it's a shame that only two of us made the trip for this club championship race. The results put Mark into 2nd place in the championship table, while I'm in 5th place.
