Tollcross and Devil’s Burden – 24 Jan 2015

Tollcross and Devil’s Burden – 24 Jan 2015

It was a busy day yesterday with many from the Club taking part in the Tollcross Parkrun, part of the club Winter Championships. With black ice underfoot on the main paths, the runners took to the grass. Well done to everyone who took part. Our ladies dominated the podium taking the top 3 spots. Over in Fife, in the Lomond Hills, we had 6 runners running in a mixed team at the Devil's Burdens relays. The race is run over 4 legs, with legs 2 and 3 run in pairs. Very Well done…Read more

Victory for Craig Reid at Hollywood Stroll, 13/5/14

I headed down to Dumfries this evening for the 5 mile Hollywood Stroll race. It's not quite as glamorous as it sounds, following quiet country roads on the outskirts of Dumfries. The course itself is undulating which makes it hard to get into a steady rhythm and the wind also meant my splits were all over the place. The race was 15 minutes late in starting due to a larger than expected number of runners. Not ideal since I hadn't had any tea and was getting hungry so just wanted to get going…Read more

Bella mountain man reaches major milestone !!

Back in 2005 Chris Upson set up a webpage to provide more information on the Scottish hill running scene, as well as providing race details and calendars it collates all results and allows you to look at clubs and individual runner profiles. Since its creation Bella has had 115 different club members participate in a hill race, the 6th highest total from around 120 clubs listed…… not bad for a road club.

Alloa Half Marathon, 16/3/2014

Alloa Half Marathon, 16/3/2014

In an attempt to re-discover my race legs I took a break from the usual Sunday morning marathon training and headed north to Alloa for their ever popular half marathon. Still smarting from being forced to travel "a bit" further north to do the Inverness half last year after Alloa had sold out, I had made sure I got my entry in early. Having not raced much over the last few months I was quite looking forward to the race, that was until I checked the 5 day forecast in the days prior.…Read more

National Road Relays, Livingston, 30/3/2014

Hi Folks, Twenty-four Bellas made the journey though to Livingston for the National Road Relay on Sunday to take on the top road runners from across the country. Cold fog and a hilly, twisty route greeted us, not to mention some top-notch opposition. The route was fairly scenic though with the best bit being the trail (eh, ROAD relay?) section along the river. Ladies teams finished 17th (4th in the V40 category) and 27th. Mens teams finished 18th, 37th and 6th in the V50 category. Some really good performances in there, which is…Read more
