The Aitkens and Scholes’ made the trip to Tiree for two of the most scenic races you’ll get in Scotland.
Lynne Aitken reprised her effort from last year in the 10k, and was finished in 55.38.07, finishing as 13th woman.
In the half marathon, which features a start and finish on the beach, Andy Aitken and Neil Scholes had a finishing straight tussle on the beach with Andy just taking the honours to finish in 7th position in a time of 1.34.02, with Neil just a few seconds behind in 8th place in a time of 1:34:06 (and 1st Senior Male Vet). Beth took 1st Senior Female Vet prize in 1.55.49. Beth also enlivened her effort with a delicate cartwheel over the finish line, which probably confused the timekeepers no end.
And reports of the post-race ceilidh were enthusiastic!
