56th Tom Scott 10 Mile Memorial Road Race 01/04/2018

This event was added to our road grand prix calendar in place of Lasswade 10 mile which was cancelled this year. I have to say I think it was a great choice. Not too far away, just an hours drive. Loads of parking. Facilities in the watersports centre such as lockers (for a fiver deposit) and showers. The route was picturesque making circles around the loch in Strathclyde country park. It was reasonably flat with only a few small inclines making it a great PB course. There was also a 6k race that started with us so you had to beware of trying to keep up with those runners before the split. The first couple of miles I was running at just over 7 minute miles and was thinking ‘no way can I keep this up!”. Bottles of water, mars bars and caramel wafers at the finish hit the spot and we all got a nice medal. Stuweb did the electronic timings so we were able to get a printout of our times right away. A fab morning out helped by the lovely weather, we were all home in time to spend the afternoon eating easter eggs with our families. Happy days! 🙂
