PH Racing Club’s Kristin Lownie was in tremendous form winning the windswept Arbroath Smokies Ten Mile Road race on Sunday morning, with Kristin heading home a huge field of 413 runners.
With Storm Jorge the only man around, Kristin forged clear of the all female field at the 3 mile mark and over the remaining 7 miles built up a 20 second advantage breaking the tape in 65.32, with Fife AC’s Jennifer Cruickshank recording a time of 65:52 in 2nd place. Scottish internationalist, and the inaugural female winner of PH’s Tilli 10k, Fiona Matheson (Falkirk Victoria Harriers), finished 3rd in 66.25.
Kristin wasn’t the only PH lady at the sharp end with Julie Menzies also in outstanding form, securing an impressive 8th place finish in 70:30.
This was great running from the female contingent at PH, showing how following our structured training consistently can be truly beneficial to race success. At PH we have a strong core of women who are all improving. If you’re a female runner and wanting to see if your race performances could benefit from our structured group training sessions (put together by club coach Ben Hukins), club long runs and being part of what really is a modern running club, then please get in touch.
We can be contacted through our website and all social media platforms to provide information on our sessions and have you welcomed along on your first night, where you can get a taste of our hard working club ethos.
Thanks to race organisers Arbroath Footers and to Alan Budge for the race photo of Kristin.
