Five Moorfoots made the journey through to Clackmananshire on Sunday for the Alloa Half Marathon. The benign conditions of last week were replaced by a somewhat overcast day with a strong westerly wind which played it part in the race, requiring some 'canny' drafting tactics in the long straight along the foot of the Ochills between miles five and ten.
First home, was Wull Hynd in a time of 1hr 17mins. This was Wull's second Half marathon in two weekends, having run the Meadows Charity event last weekend in a 'tu-tu' in a time only one minute slower than his Alloa time.
The ever improving Aegir Maciver came home next in 1hr 26mins, removing a huge nine full minutes from his previous Half Marathon best at Jedburgh in 2008. (we told you the new Moorfoot 'racer' shorts were fast....)
Kenny Davidson put in a solid shift with 1hr 27mins; Steve Martin was a bit below par at 1hr 33mins; Julia Conner though found the course and conditions to her liking and despite recent fatigue still managed an excellent 1hr 36mins.
