Sunday 24th November saw the first open event of the Migo Mile.
With October’s event, closed and a test event for Glasgow South Road Runners, yesterday’s race was the first official running.
With a slight confusion over age limits, a couple of eager juniors were allowed to race. Not wanting to disappoint and curb their enthusiasm, we yesterday allowed them to run and record a time. Unfortunately, due to age restrictions from UK Athletics this will not be possible in the future.
All in, 20 runners took part on the ‘flattest 1-mile route in Queen’s Park’.
Kilmarnock Harrier, Jamie Phillips set a new course record (breaking that set in the test event) with a speedy 04.57 on the clock. Closely followed home by brother Jordan in 5.10. Bellahouston Road Runner, Craig Ross completing the podium, commenting “That’s the first time I’ve finished in front of Jack Arnold (Bellahouston Harrier)!!”
Fellow Road Runner, Louise Ross also put in a fantastic performance to add to her 1st place and PB at Linwood parkrun on Saturday, taking the women’s course record and crossing the line in 06:06.
Previous record holder, Maria Doherty (Glasgow South Road Runners) finished 2nd in 06.33, chased in the closing straight by Bella Harrier, Angela Campbell in 06.37.
A total of £53 was raised for the Sophie Rocks 2019 challenge in aid of Hospiceiom and in memory of Sophie Moolman
