Bee The Best

Culloden runnersGraham Bee was buzzing on Sunday after setting a new course record in the 17.46k at the Culloden Run. The event, also featuring a 10K, saw close to 500 runners taking part in ideal race conditions.

Graham finished the 17.46k race in an impressive 60 minutes and 46 seconds beating the previous record by 1 minute and 14 seconds. He finished ahead of Ryan McKenzie (1:07:32) in second place, and 2014 champion Gordon Lennox (1:09:18) in third.

Fastest female was Gillian Clark, who crossed the finish line in 1:21:39. In the 10K, Ben Ward clocked 36:07 to win the race, with Kaisa Honkaharju the women’s winner.

Organiser Paul Corrigan reflected on the event’s fifth staging: “This was arguably the best yet with fine weather, smooth organisation, a great looking venue and route and of course lots of happy runners (even on the hills!)”

The Culloden Run 17.46k and the Culloden 10K are devised by leading charity Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland in partnership with the National Trust for Scotland. The event is currently on target to raise over £15,000 for CHSS.
