Hi there

As much as I enjoy reading all the postings here I would like to hear from Scottish runners. Are there any out there or am I on my own???

I live in Old Kilpatrick not too far from Glasgow.

Also why is there so little info about races in Scotland?

All the Welsh runners--apart from the 5 min miles boys--have vanished also. It's our Pictish/Gaelic climate that does for them, Robert. Perhaps they all ressurrect when the sun comes out?

I'm half Scottish, but lived in England all my life. I imagine Borther Walfrid is Scottish.

Hiya Robert,

I'm a fellow Scot but living in Kent. From Carluke, Lanarkshire originally

Check out the old event threads on the Glasgow Half and Loch Ness Marathon to see that all is well with Scottish running/runners.

Also look at page 126 of the latest RW mag for a list of forthcoming Scottish events.

Happy running

Scotty

Ah, Benz, but we're tough.
Or a bit chewy, anyway. That's why we're still at it.
Running that is.

Hi, I live in Aberdeen (born and bred) and I agree about the lack of information on Scottish race! - so there!!

Hi Robert

I live in Arbroath and my husband comes from Old Kilpatrick, coincidence eh!! The Scottish Athletics website is good for Scottish race info - saf.org (or something!)

Hi
I'm Dundee born but moved to Edinburgh last year. I agree with Mrs Mac about the Scottish athletics website - only place i've found with lots of Scottish race info.

Hi there, I live in Aberdeen too.

Mrs Mac, are you doing the Arbroath Smokies 10 mile for ladies in March.

I see many of the same faces at races I have attended in the Northeast. Moray and Lossiemouth areas seem to have a few races each year but Aberdeen seems to have very few races.

Looking for a good 10k in this area in April, any suggestions.

I am up in Inverness, you are not alone.

Hi Jane M

Yes! Its the first time I've entered, although I'm familiar with the course(v. hilly)Have you ran it before?

Good to hear that there are still a few of us Scots out there running. Mabye we are just a shy lot and keep in the background??

Any of you training for a spring marathon? I am doing the Paris marathon if I can get fit enough.

Well I am off out for a run now. It is a cold but sunny day out there.

Hi Mrs Mac, haven't ran it before as I only started entering races from May onwards last year. A very hilly course means a good test for me and not a fast time, I ran 1hr 45 mins in the Lossiemouth 10 and was very pleased to be third from last. I see from last years results that Jenny Allen ran it last year, do you know if she's doing it this year, I would love to meet this very great lady.

Having a day off today as there is a very thin covering of snow here, this fell on top of very wet pavements and roads so won't chance it.
