Road Runners’ busy week

It was another busy weekend for Forfar Road Runners with club members involved in races the length and breadth of the country.

At the Loch Ness Marathon on Sunday, Nari Hena notched up a season’s best with a time of 3:50:56, almost 45 minutes quicker than his time for last year’s race. Despite battling with injuries over the summer, Angie Mackenzie also had an excellent run to finish just a couple of minutes short of her personal best for the distance in a time 
of 4:25:15.

Meanwhile, south of the border, reigning men’s champion Jack Davies racked up yet another personal best, this time at the Robin Hood Half Marathon in Nottingham.

Despite the warm conditions, Jack finished the race in 1:30:40 shaving 18 seconds off his previous best. Closer to home, Sandra Pattie was first Forfar Road Runner back at the Arbroath 10K, finishing in a time of 00:50:03, just ahead of her club-mate Elizabeth Montgomery-Fox who clocked 00:50:31.

Finally, at Saturday’s Two Breweries Hill Race from Traquair to Broughton, Brian Bonnyman finished in 14th place in a time of 03:19:07.
