Personal bests were set at another well attended day of galloping around Ness for the annual North Lewis 10K and 5K races.

A huge turnout of 52 runners tackled the might of the North Lewis 10 where, breaking the tape first in the 10K was Murdo Mackenzie (SRAC) in 35:44 – just fractionally ahead of club mate Willie MacRury in a sprint finish (35:47). Coming home in third was Donnie Graham.

SRAC’s Alanna Goddard crossed the line as the first female runner in an impressive 43:18 which was more than three minutes clear of her nearest female rival, fellow SRAC member Ceit Stewart. In third place was Elly Fletcher in 48:01.

In the 5K there were 54 participants and the times set were as equally impressive. Crossing the chalk at top speed in first place was Mark Maciver in a quick 18:44. Coming in behind him was youngster Kyle Munro of SRAC in 19:40 and Scott Maciver took third spot in 21:20.

For the ladies the first home was SRAC’s Gemma Macritchie 24:41, second was Louise Henderson in 26:58 and Isla Budge in 28:03.
