MacDonald 5K Handicap

After 2 years of virtual events Saturday finally saw the return of the McDonald 5k handicap in it’s traditional format as 31 runners battle it out to put their name on the trophy.

After weeks of storms the sun was shining, the wind was calm, but there was a tiny patch of ice on a small section of the Meadows which gave everyone an excuse for a couple of seconds being added to their time per lap

Lots of good performances out there, with Roddy Forgie taking 1st place on the day after a great performance following a solid block of training. Special congrats also go to Pierre and HazelĀ  who notched the fastest male and female time without the handicap on the day, although there were a lot of great runs out there as be seen by the tight battle for podium places which were just taken by Tom and Iain after a sprint through the grass/mud to the finish.

These things can’t happen without a good squad of volunteers so thanks as always goes to everyone who came along on the day to make sure things ran smoothly.
