Four of us made the trip to the glamorous location of Croy railway station for the Antonine trail race. This mainly off-road race loops up and down and round assorted hilly muddy locations in the Croy and Kilsyth area, with some of the route following the Antonine Wall. Tony Wayte was first Harrier in, in a time of 1.46.13, in 26h position Next in, running further than she’d ever run before and putting in a terrific performance, was Rachel Gallagher, who just missed the 2-hour mark thanks to the ankle-deep mud in the closing stretches. Nevertheless, her time of 2.01.25 was the performance of the day. Nicola Watson wasn’t far behind, finishing in 2.06.12, taking 1st FV50 prize, and Lauren Fairweather was close behind in 2.09.29.
The race was won by David Gow of Shettleston Harriers in a time of 1.30.03, and the women's race was won by Rachel Hunt in a time of 1.43.44. Full results are here.
