Meadows Marathon

12/03/2017

On Sunday 5th March Richard McDougall and Maggie Gray travelled to Edinburgh for the Meadows Marathon – an event organised by students from universities in the Edinburgh area with the aim to raise funds for a number of charities. 

The marathon event is held alongside a half marathon, 10k and a 5k fun run, and involves 18 laps of an approximately 1.45mile undulating loop in the Meadows park. Richard was aiming for a time of sub 5 hours as a qualifying time for the upcoming Comrades 50 mile race in South Africa which he is undertaking with Maggie in June. Running conditions were very good and the race was well supported with music and cheering spectators throughout the event which meant that Richard and Maggie were able to finish comfortably within 5 hours in a time just under 4 hours and 35 minutes. To top off a successful day both Richard and Maggie were first in their age categories. Both runners are now qualified for the Comrades race and DRC wishes them both the best of luck in this event.
