Edinburgh Marathon

Kevin Morrison and Karene Ferrier were both running this marathon.  Both of them were running for a charity and in memory of a loved one.  This was Kevin’s first Marathon but Karene is an old hand at Marathons, Karene was running with her partner Hazel, so they would be running together

I’m sure he should run and not take a bus 🙂

around the course, this is Hazels 1st Marathon as

well but I’m sure that Karene kept her going


Kevin finished in 4:02:29

Karene finished in 6:08:17


Nairnshire Challenge

Steven Morrison participated in this event today.  This will be the final Nairnshire Challenge.  The Nairnshire Challenge is a 30-mile sponsored duathlon organised annually by the Rotary Club of Nairn.

Steven had a really good race on the run section and cycle even with some bad cramp .  He finished 9th out of 323 in a time of 2:34.58.  About an 18min Pb
