5km Scottish Championship Race – 05/05/2017

There were 3 MRRs on the start line for the Scottish 5k Champs, once again held along the promenade at Silverknowes, Edinburgh.

The race is completely flat, follows a figure of 8 loop and is regarded as a fast course hence the 482 runners this year.

The very blustery conditions made the first and last km extremely challenging but there were still fine performances from

Kenny Wilson (14th) in 15.03

Cameron Main (21st) in 15.14

Gareth Jenkins (68th) in 16.18.

Outstanding run from Cameron, now based in Stirling and still only 17 years old.

Thanks to Carol and George for their on-course support and hopefully see a few more MRRs there next year.
