Famous Face at 3k Race

After Thursday’s efforts at Clydebank, it was on with the sensible hat on Friday (29th May 2015) as I gave the old legs a rest and decided to revert to photography duties at the monthly 3k on the Green.

There was another good turnout, with some well known faces making their debut at the increasingly popular event.  Not least of all being Falkirk’s Fiona Matheson, the UK’s No. 1  50+ female runner.

Race Report – by Jessica Oliver-Bell

In today’s race, we had the usual mixture of club runners and fun runners of all ages. Among our youngest competitors were Ross Stephen (09.50), Brendan Carey (09.52), and Scott Somerville (09.54) from Cambuslang. All under 20 years of age, these boys claimed 3 of the top-5 spots. The first male was Grant Baillie (09.16), with the first female, Fiona Matheson (10.28), not far behind. Many runners felt the benefits of the sun’s rays and produced PB performances, including Gavin Smith (10.02), David Mackintosh (10.06), and Cheryl Stead (14.01).

The overall best performance of the day goes to one of our regular veteran runners, Walter Ewing (19.45) of Shettleston Harriers, who surpassed his own expectations to break 20 minutes and finish in one piece with a smile on his face.

Alongside our regulars, we had many first-timers, too many to name them all! A warm welcome to you – we hope you all enjoyed running today as much as we enjoyed watching. Spread the word, summer is here, and 3K on the Green is a good place to start if you want to get fit and have fun.
