Make Merry at Migo Mile
With the festive season in full swing, the December Migo Mile was bumped a day, and took place on a Monday.
Some potential participants expressed a wee bit of dismay having to return to work. However, 28 runners took to the tarmac to test their mettle against the clock.
New course records for both male and female categories had spectating race sponsor, Migo Sports, grimace with two more £10 vouchers heading the way of the winners.
Tale of the Tape
In uncanny coincidence, male winner Gavin Smith (Cambuslang Harriers) running bib number 44, set a time of 4.44. “Can I have bib 33 for the next race”, quipped Smith at the finish line! Second place Duncan Robinson chased Smith around the course setting an impressive 4.54. This was also inside the course record set in November. Rounding off the top three was Fraser Armstrong (Bellahouston Harriers) in 5.25
An early start to travel up from Ayr paid dividends for Toni Macintosh (Ayr Seaforth). Setting a new course record of 5.54, with promises of more to come, “I didn’t feel I was at full throttle today” she commented after the race.
Previous course record holder, Louise Ross won the battle of the Bellas. The Road Runner holding off Harrier, Katherine Hylands to finish in 6.03 and 6.04 respectively.
Thank you to today’s volunteers – Michelle Sinsheimer, Brian Hughes, Rodger McEleney, Deidre Hoyle, Sharon Taylor and Jamie Provan.
The next running will be Sunday 26th January at 9.30
