Tom Scott 10mile Road Race

14/04/2011

The Tom Scott memorial 10 mile race at Motherwell has always attracted the cream of Scotland’s road racers on a fast and flat course. Established 49 years ago to commemorate the tragic early death of one of Lanarkshire’s finest runners, the original route ran directly from Law to Motherwell on one of Tom’s regular training runs However, on police advice in the last few years the route has been changed to a series of loops inside Strathclyde Park which increases the safety of the runners but means that the race route is shared with pedestrians, dog walkers and many locals enjoying the unseasonably warm weather.

The best performance of the 13 DRC members came from Mickey Breen who was 9th overall in 55.29, a frustrating three seconds behind Andrew Lemoncello who ran for Britain in last year’s European athletics championships at Barcelona. Steven Smith ran well to finish 17th in 58.22 and Alan Baxter in 62.11 held off both exiled Doonhamer Steven Winter running for Shettleston and Chris Woods by less than 30 seconds.

The unluckiest runner of the weekend was Graeme Cross. Three quarters of the way round an over refreshed spectator decided to rugby tackle him and attempted to knock him off balance but he still managed to complete the race in 64.37. Adam Dickie ran a new PB in 65.06 a hundred seconds in front of Norman Neilson and Les Hill in 68.22 used the race as pace judgement for upcoming ultra events and Sandy Shankland was slightly down on his usual pace in 69.43.

Maureen Dickson ran well in 78.35 as did Mike Trant in 81.19 but Jim Grierson in 87.53 was mystified afterwards to explain why he was slower than expected. Kerry Walker finished strongly in 89.24.
