Marian & Steven Win at Bute
Greenock Glenpark Harriers returned to the Isle of Bute for their Singlehurst trophy race. The senior 5.km race started at Kingarth then headed down to the village of Kilchattan. The runners then turned on to the West Island Way trail, before reaching the sting in the tail, a 400 feet steep climb up Suidhe Chatain.
It was on the climb that Steven Campbell established his winning margin over Paul Monaghan and Chris Mooney.
Danny McLaughlin had a storming finish passing four on the return down the hillside and the short return along the road back to Kingarth.
Marian Monk with the club championship already sewn up, again claimed top spot, with the improving Nicola Stevenson in the runners-up position just heading last year’s winner Lorna Coyle.
Harry McGill left it late to put distance between himself and Ewan Ferguson and Jude Dolan for a comfortable win in the 3.5km run. It was an all-girl line up in the under 11s ½ mile race, with Sophie McLaughlan powering away from a very closely matched Maria McCabe and Erin McEleny.
A special thanks to Shaun Lyon and his family for hosting the race and providing refreshments in the beautiful setting looking onto Kilchattan bay.
