Magnus and Paul do the first Stirling Marathon

Magnus Skea and Paul Nichol took part in the inaugural Stirling Marathon. The course is a bit undulating so not exactly a PB course. Magnus clocked 3.19.20 and less than a minute behind Double Commonwealth gold medal winner and running legends Liz McColgan (OK she's getting on a bit now but sounds good!). It’s fair to say Magnus hadn’t exactly done the amount of training you would expect in a typical marathon training programme so he was delighted with the time which wasn’t far off his PB set last year.

Moorfoot marathon fan Paul ran his second marathon in month having raced London last month and set a time of 4.00.39, just outside the 4hr barrier and unsurprisingly slower than his London time.

Congratulations both of you
Paul looking far too happy for a someone running a marathon!!
Magnus looking rather happy after the marathon with his Stirling gin!
