Girvan Half Marathon – Sunday 14 July 2013

Sunday saw this years Girvan Half Marathon take place in unusually hot conditions which for most would have been a hindrance rather than a help for such a race.

The notoriously undulating course usually means that times are slower than usual, though splendid efforts from Steven Eaglesham and Aimi Barker resulted in PBs.

The race also doubled as the West of Scotland half marathon championship and Steven Reid picked up a bronze medal.



3rd Steven Reid                    1.20.35

8th Steven Eaglesham           1.28.40

11th Laurence Baker             1.31.09

46th Gael Riddle                   1.49.20
