CCL Land O’Burns Road Race 2019

A busy week of competition was started by this years CCL Land O’Burns 10k Road Race which took place last Wednesday and had an increase in entrants to over 300. This no doubt is in a large part due to the excellent sponsorship of the event given by CCL Logistics of Troon with increased cash prizes for the first 3 finishers in both the male and female categories, additional spot prizes and goodie bags being given to all participants.

Conditions on the night were excellent with dry, sunny weather being the order of the day for a race which starts on the sea front at Seafield then winds its way through Doonfoot & Alloway past Burns Cottage before coming to a conclusion within the Old Racecourse.

In the mens race it was Sean Chalmers of Inverness Harriers who took the title with a new course record of 31:17.5 followed by Stuart Gibson (31:58.7) of Cambuslang Harriers and Colin Whitby (34:49.9) of Irvine Running Club. The womens race also a new course record of 36:59.0 set by Toni McIntosh of Ayr Seaforth AC who was also 12th overall. Second place in the womens race went to Julie Beveridge (40:27.7) of Calderglen Harriers whilst third place went to Andreea Petrescu (41:43.1) who ran as unattached.

Road Race Results Update

It has been a busy weekend for members of the Ayr Seaforth Road Race section with several in action at various locations around Britain. On Saturday Tim Downie completed the John Muir Way Trail Ultra Marathon which is a 50km ultra race that primarily takes place along The John Muir Way in East Lothian navigating through places such as Gullane & North Berwick before finishing in Dunbar. Tim was one of 165 runners who took part and he completed the 50km course in a creditable 5hrs 21mins.

Next up was Laurence Baker who also competed on Saturday but this time in a slightly longer race, namely the Glasgow to Edinburgh Ultra Marathon. This is a 55 mile race which starts in Ruchill Park, Glasgow and follows a course along both the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals before taking in the Antonine Wall & Falkirk Wheel before the finish in Edinburgh Key. A truly daunting prospect for most but Laurence completed the course in 10hrs 38mins.
