The Monument Mile Series organised by Central AC returned to the Stirling University track on Friday evening. Fantastic event and the evening was finished by a Sub 4 mile by Ben McMillan (Central AC).Ben was the first home Scot to break the sub 4 mark on home soil since 1985.The last man to do this was Adrian Callan of our club. At our Open Graded Meetings this year we are organising the first Adrian Callan Memorial 800m races for U/15 girls. The Callan family have donated a fantastic trophy and the race will be run in a similar basis as the Derek McLean race – prizes for the first 3 and teeshirts for the 8 who make the final.

It was an otherwise quiet Saturday for the shettleston parkrunners with only a handful of results to report this weekend.

At Tollcross, Arlene McKenna tried to hold off Edinburgh runner Angie Meffan-Main but was overtaken in the latter stages. But in doing so still ran a personal best for 2nd female on the well known hilly but scenic course.

Meanwhile over at Victoria Park, Fergus Donnelly was trying to resume business as usual but was out gunned by Gregor Stewart who took 1st place. 16.39 still a respectable time for Fergus who trains with the club on Mondays at the track.

No hillrunners this weekend at Queens Parkrun, only Andrew Shields who finished in a time of 24.04

Oriam Parkrun will not ring a bell to many but is a new parkrun started in 2019 going around the Heriot Watt University. It is mainly trail and normally attended by Hunters Bog Trotters, Central and Corstorphine runners. Melanie Hayes finished in 29.10. Well done Melanie.
