The Great Scottish Run

05/10/2014

This year's Great Scottish Run hosted a fantastic international field over a new course round the streets and parks of Glasgow. Several DRC runners also took up the challenge, and here is how they got on....

The Scottish wind added to the challenge of some new hills en route, but the best man on the day was Stephen Mokoka who won in a time of 61:25, with Edna Kiplagat leading the ladies home in 67:57.

The first DRC runner back was Jo Zakrzewski in a time of 78:46, she found the race surprisingly reminiscent of the Commonwealth marathon in that, although heading down some of the same streets in the opposite direction, she again found herself running alone for a considerable portion of the race. Kevin Conchar was making his return to racing after a 5 month hiatus, and had a steady strong run to finish in 80:53, much to the delight of his fantastic cheering squad who braved some brief rain squalls to support him. Lisa Finlay was hampered by a hamstring problem but showed her determination and pushed on to cross the line in 84:08. All three runners can claim to have passed the great Haile Gebreselassie as pulled off the course and out of the race after 18 minutes.

The half marathon was preceded by a 10k race (which used the same start and finish). This was won by Sean Fontana in 31:03. Chris Wilson flew the flag for Dumfries RC in this race with a finish time of 58:21.
