Nigel Barge 10k

Sunday also saw Harriers run one of the oldest races in the country, the Nigel Barge 10k hosted by Maryhill Harriers. First run in 1943, the race moved back to its traditional January slot having succumbed to the weather in the last couple of years and been delayed until March. While there was no snow covering the paths, the recent rain had left some of the paths quite muddy.

As the first local 10k of the year, the race allows runners to take stock of their training after the festive period and see whether Marcothon has worked a treat or if too many beers and mince pies were consumed.

At the sharp end of the race, twenty-one seconds separated Jack Heathwood and Gregor Yates after a strong second from the former. Robbie Ferguson and David Simpson were separated by a similar amount, both running 38 minutes.

Kenny Taylor nicked under 42 minutes by a few seconds while Emily Jackson was the first Bella lady home in a time of 48:27.

Angela McArthur finished in the top 200 in a time of 53:37 and Robyn Millar and Linda Moffat narrowly missed out on a sub 54 time running 54:03 and 54:07 respectively.

Lisa Gilmore, Jennifer Hoyle, and Stella McCulloch were the next pack to complete the two loop course. Lisa ran a time of 57:17 while Jennifer was just outside 58 minutes. Stella finished in a time of 60:33.
