London Marathon 2016 – Bella Results

London Marathon 2016 – Bella Results

With perfect running conditions, today's London Marathon saw Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge run one of the fastest marathon runs of all time, setting a new course record of 2:03:04. In the ladies race an amazing recovery after a heavy fall saw fellow Kenyan Jemima Sumgon win in 02:22:58. It was also a quite remarkable day for Glasgow area marathon runners, with Kilbarchan AAC's Callum and Derek Hawkins finishing 1st and 3rd of the British runners in the men's race, and Shettleston Harrier's Tsegai Tewelde finishing 2nd. Rio now beckons for Callum and Tsegai, and hopefully…Read more
Race Report – Tartan Skidaddle Ultra marathon and Duathlon -10 April 2016

Race Report – Tartan Skidaddle Ultra marathon and Duathlon -10 April 2016

It was with some trepidation that I headed to The Great Tartan Skidaddle yesterday morning at 6am. Having never run an ultra, in my wisdom I thought it would be a good precursor to the Devil o The Highlands. All contestants met in Callander and were bussed out to Inversnaid for the start of the race. The duathletes left ten minutes before us then we were off. The first stage of the race is an undulating trail with stunning views of Loch Arklet to the first checkpoint at Stronachlachar. We were blessed when…Read more

Clydebank 5k – 19 Mar 2016 – results

Well done to all the Bellahouston Road Runners who took part in the Clydebank 5k on Saturday. When 16 out of the 23 competitors for the Club get PBs in a race (70% Bella PBs compared to 43% PBs of all entrants), you have to ask if the course was short or the timer forgot to start the clock!  There certainly were some issues with the results on the day, and the published ones currently still seem to have given everyone the time of the person ahead of them.  However, PB improvements of 20-30…Read more

Wrexham Marathon 6/3/16

Wrexham Marathon 6/3/16

“What marathon are you doing Kev?” “The Wrexham Marathon………what do you mean you’ve never heard of it?!” That’s been the standing joke for months, most people were left scratching their heads wondering why Aaron and I had chosen this obscure race. The original plan was to run the Meadows Marathon in Edinburgh, I was all set until the awards night when Aaron announced he’d found this little gem in North Wales. Unbeknown to me he’d been frantically searching for an alternative to the 14 laps of the Meadows as he hates running loops.…Read more
