Allan Scally Memorial Relay

14/03/2019

Les Hill couldn’t fit in the Stranraer Half marathon as he had to be in Glasgow for the weekend so he mustered a team to join him in Shettleston Harriers Allan Scally Relay held in Glasgow Green. 

He pulled in two Dumfries Running Club members that live on the outskirts of Glasgow and drafted in the fourth man, Nigel Clement, to make up the team. Clem, as he prefers to be known as, is a member of the Welsh club – Penarth and Dinas Runners but is currently working and living in Bishopbriggs so was happy to be included. Combined teams are allowed for this race so the team was entered as Dumfries Running Club & A Mate

This was the 49th time this memorial relay had been held but the first time in Glasgow Green. This change was to make the event traffic free as the routes previously used had become very busy with traffic.

Brian Mohan, did the first leg which is like a normal race having the mass start. In almost perfect conditions he completed the flat, accurate, 5K course in 20.34 and handed over to Les who ran one second per mile slower than Brian, 20.37.

Drew Burgess, who doesn’t race much at present having only done three 10K races in 2018, was delighted to get the chance to participate in a relay team for the first time in  5 years. He said before the start he would be happy to break 23 minutes and worked hard to record 22.48 before passing the baton to the guest runner. Running the last leg is the hardest of the four because the field is strung out by that time meaning the runners has very few others to chase down. So recording the team’s fastest time of 20.31 was a great achievement.

The team finished 70th out of over 100 teams, most of which are made up of runners in their twenties, but in the Over 50 category they were a respectable third.
