Gary Bruce travelled to New York for the marathon at the weekend. It was a cold and blustery day with temperatures in the low 40s and winds gusting to 45mph which really slowed the course. Gary however put in a great performance to clock a new PB finishing 881st in a time of 3:02:53
Closer to home a number of Hawks ran the Templeton 10. Roger Van Gompel was 1st Hawk (3rd overall) in 1:00:43 closely followed by Billy Gibson in 5th (1:01:19) and Johnny McBain in 7th (1:01:58). The Hawks also had two females representing the club. Catherine Matthews finished 121st in 1:27:48 and Lucy Fyffe in 164th (1:37:09).
On the west coast Alan Lawson and Louise Beveridge were out running the Southside 6. Alan completed the course in 2:02 and Louise put in a great performance with a return to form finishing 2nd Female in 1:49.
A summary of all Hawks results for Templeton will be posted to the results page shortly.
