Great Aberdeen Run HM and 10km

Several MRRs were through at Aberdeen and racing in both races.

In the 10k – Kenny Wilson finishing 2nd in a course pb for him. 31.27.

For those who haven’t read Michelle’s story I have put it below 🙈

Great Aberdeen Run 10k…a lesson in how not to run a race! Arrived at 9am to find the race was just starting (not at 10am as I had thought)!! 😱 Bumped into Carol Sim who said there was still time as the JS group was away to start, so a mad dash to pick up my number from race tent and begged them to look after my stuff, stripped off in the street and had a tourist help me get changed, charged down to race line and joined the end of the last start group. Straight into the race with zero warm up, was at the front of the group by the time we got to the harbour with nobody else to run with, but found another guy who had also started late, so we raced each other round. 10k in 43.12mins…what a carry on! 😆 Good route, not a flat course, but I really enjoyed it, despite the chaos at the start! One of these days I will get my act together, but not today…

Followed by Graeme Stephen. Bernard Salmon also pb by 30secs. Michelle Russell 2.10. Janet May👍🏻

  1. Ran with two MRR for most of the race, unintentionally but they were setting a good pace. Just past Pittodrie one of them pulled up quite quickly. Wondering if he’s alright?
    Looking at the scoring, one of the lads was Martin Bain, who finished just ahead of me so wondering about the other unknown one.

      Thanks for your question Richard. Martin was running with Ally and they both finished so I am unsure who that might be but I will ask at the club on Wednesday, glad you had a good race
