Men’s championship

In the men’s championship a fantastic 21 completed five qualifying races.

Neil Renault left it to the very last race to complete his five qualifying races and with a fantastic run at the Great Scottish Run (GSR) overtook long time series leader Bryan Mackie, who finished the season in style with a PB and a superb 69minute GSR to secure the runners-up spot. Stuart ‘Disco Stu’ Johnston rounded out the podium following another PB performance at the GSR.

Adam Rouse also left it to the last race to secure his fifth qualifying run, but it was enough to help him take the V40 championships ahead of Colin McGill.

In the V50 category, David Cross won the championship with despite the efforts of Chris Creegan who finished a strong second, and Eric Stevenson once again proved that age is a barrier to nothing in powering to the V60 championships.

Women’s Championship

It may have taken a bit of time for the women’s championship to get going, but in the end there was lots of great competition for both the overall title and the V40 championship, which was great to see. Six women managed to complete the five qualifying races to secure an overall position, but there were another seven who completed four races, so still quite a bit of interest.

Long-time leader, Charlotte Garry, lodged a final Parkrun on Saturday, and despite the best efforts of Hannah Waugh at the GSR on Sunday Charlotte remained clear on points to win the championships.

Karen Dobbie rounded out the podium following a great run at the GSR and also in the process edged past Elaine Davies to secure the V40 championship.

Position Athlete Age Category Total
1 Charlotte Garry Sen 477
2 Hannah Waugh Sen 457
3 Karen Dobbie V40 427
4 Elaine Davies V40 380
5 Sarah Cadenas Sen 189
6 Holly Ennis Sen 60
V40 Karen Dobbie V40 427
