On behalf of West Lothian Council, can I thank all EAC members who helped at The Hopetoun House Eric Liddell Trail runs on Olympic Torch Relay day. The athletics, the setting, the iconic Torch, the sunshine, we are so pleased with the day.
Kirk, Jenny, Sarah and Mhairi ran in club or international vest as did former EAC man Mark Johnstone. All added to the expertise on the day. I have had great reports from all the schools. Some commented on the fitness of our athletes others on your knowledge and enthusiasm. Staff could see your contribution. So thank you. A great credit to athletics and your clubs.
Other clubs contributed such as Portobello and there is a great blog with photos by Peter Buchanan. Local club Linlithgow helped, who I hear have started planning their popular challenging 10k road race.
Some feel of the day is here in a Porty view which maybe captures all the good of sport within the corporatism of Professional sport:- Peter’s Blog
I am gathering some photaes of the days sport and hope to get them posted shortly
