Quick times at Scottish 5k Champs

Scott McDonald and Sam MacNeil raced on a beautiful evening at Silverknowes for the Scottish 5k Champs. As you would expect the standard was very high, being won in a time of 14:36.

Scott finished in a scorching time of 16:37, 92nd and was the third M50, so close to the win, with the first in his category only 6 seconds ahead. He was rightly delighted with an excellent run saying:
"a 1min 05sec improvement over my last road 5km in the last two years has blown my mind"

Sam clocked exactly 18:00 and 199th place commenting
"not back to race fitness yet but very pleased to be back racing ! Front lads were unbelievably fast 💨"

Also in action was ex Moorfoot Lucas Cheskin, who is now studying in Glasgow, and he went even faster posting a time of 16:06 to claim 35th place.
