Alloa Half Marathon – Sunday 16 March 2014

The 32nd Alloa Half Marathon took place on Sunday 23 March with a record entry of 1524 runners. Entries had to close early for this event due to the massive interest and organisers are considering increasing the entry numbers by 300 next year to accommodate those who were disappointed this year. Seaforth had 20 runners from the ever growing Road Race section travelling to the event and they were met by very blustery conditions although this did not deter them. Results for those who participated are shown below :-

A group of 12 Seaforth athletes made the trip to the Riccarton campus of Herriot Watt University, Edinburgh on Sunday to compete in this years National Junior Road Race Championships.

They were greeted with overcast and windy conditions which made a change to the very wet conditions last year.

First race of the day was the u13 girls who competed over a 2600m course. Seaforth had 2 athletes in the 70 strong field with Caitlin Chilton completing the course in 33rd place with a time of 10:24 and Jena Anderson 54th in 11:25.

The next race was the u13 boys who also ran the 2600m course with Scott Sprang 4th of the 68 runners in 8:35, Greig Oakley 45th in 9:44 and Daniel Martin 52nd in 10:10. This completed the first winter season for both Scott and Greig in this age group with young Scott having finished in a top 10 position in both this race and the recent National Cross Country Championships.

The u15 age groups had a slightly longer course which measured 4300m. In the girls race Seaforth had 3 athletes in a field of 52. First home was Mia Cullis 36th in 18:26 followed by India Birrell 40th in 19:01 and Megan Short 47th in 21:10.

The u15 boys had Fraser Stirling finishing 11th of 65 athletes in a time of 14:23 and Ross Nicolson 41st in 16:14.

The final races of the day were the u17’s who raced over a 5200m course.

Scottish Veteran Harriers Open Masters Road Race Relays

Seaforth had 3 men’s and 2 ladies teams running in the annual Scottish Veteran Harriers Road Relay Race which took place at Strathclyde Loch on Sunday 26 January. Each runner had to run a loop of the loch which equated to a distance of 3.8 miles.

The weather forecast of gale force winds accompanied by torrential rain / hail / sleet proved to be correct but only for the unfortunate first leg runners. By the time the fourth leg runners got underway the sun had broken through, albeit only briefly, and the wind had dropped slightly below the earlier gale force.

For many of the Seaforth team this was their first experience of road relay running but they took it in their stride. The stars of the day were the ladies ‘A’ team of Claire Gillespie, Debbie Telford and Diane McGill who came home in 11th position to prove once again they are the best team in Ayrshire.

Well done to all of those who braved the conditions to take part, full results are shown below :-
