The Scottish Athletics National Indoor Masters Championships took place on Sunday at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow with PH Racing Club’s Allen Marr looking to add another gold medal to his collection after winning last month’s 3000m over 60 championship race.
This time, Allen was competing for the 1500m title in the over 60 race and he was on top form. Allen ran superbly well to take the win timing at 5.02 to add another national gold medal. On claiming his second championship gold Allen said, “I am absolutely delighted with such a successful outcome from the indoor running season. During the winter I focussed on the indoor 1500m and 3000m events and all the hard work and preparation has paid off. I have stuck to our club coach Ben Hukins’ training schedule even when I have had to train on my own, Ben along with my PH club mates have to take a huge amount of credit for the great culture of high performance at the club.”
It has been a fantastic start to 2018 for Allen and thoroughly deserved after his dedication and approach to his training.
