There were some excellent results from the Aberfeldy Highland Perthshire Marathon and Half Marathon. Nick Gough, running 2 laps of the half marathon route for the full marathon, took an impressive 21 minutes off his previous marathon best to finish in 13th position overall, in a cracking time of 3.12.15.
Taking part in the half marathon were Anne Hartemann, Irene Smith, Becky Hughes and Josie Goodfellow. Anne had a great race at the sharp end, finishing in 10th place overall and winning the women’s race in a time of 1.27.40. Josie narrowly missed the 2 hour mark with a time of 2.00.28, and while Irene and Becky were hampered slightly by an old injury, they were happy enough to get round in one piece in a time of 2.25.26.
