Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014

Stornoway half marathon

Monday, May 30, 2016

Leg 1 of Andy Aitken's islands adventure took him to the Stornoway half marathon, where it sounds like he had a good time. In his own words:

"Hello, excellent run yesterday soaked in sunshine. 1st half toured through the streets of Stornoway town, making its way to the outskirts before looping around to take in the 2nd half through the grounds of Lews castle. Very nice cinder paths around the grounds that rolled along nicely. A couple of testing climbs but a great finish for the last 3 miles, downhill for the most part and then a flat fast last mile past the castle and around to finish at Stornoway harbour. Finished in a time of 1.33:42, which I can happily add the letters PB after 😀💪 Another island adventure done, now to relax for a week here in Lewis and Harris before Benbecula 😎
