Four PH athletes were in action at the Templeton 10 organised by Dundee Road Runners on Sunday, returning with a couple of prizes. The hilly 10 mile route consists mostly of a clockwise loop around quiet roads to the north of Dundee and conditions on the day were very windy.
Unsurprisingly, the race was won by local Scottish internationalist James Donald with Craig Paterson the first PH finisher in 7th. His time of 1:03:32 put him just under two minutes ahead of teammate Mark Webster, who crossed the line in 10th position in 1:05:30. Mark McLean completed the PH men’s team which won the overall team prize with 1:07:51 for 14th place, and also winning the V50 award.
Our only representative in the women’s race was Clare Graham, who along with Webster and McLean also ran the previous day’s Short Course Cross Country Championships at Lanark. Clare completed her race in 1:35:31.
On Saturday, Michael Stewart and Susan Allan took part in the gruelling Glen Ogle 33 ultra, starting and finishing in Killin, in very unpleasant conditions. Michael finished in 5:47:02 while Susan got back to Killin in 6:26:06.
Well done to all who raced over the weekend and thanks to race organisers Dundee Road Runners and Rocket Events. Thanks also to Pete Bracegirdle for the excellent race photos from Templeton 10.
