Scots Take 1st, 3rd and 5th Places at Dublin Marathon

Dublin Marathon

Over 200 Scottish runners made their way across the Irish Sea to join with over 10,000 others taking part in the 30th Anniversary Dublin Marathon held on Monday, October 26 and they were to be rewarded with 1st, 3rd and 5th places.

Scots Winners

In a great day for Scottish veteran runners, unattached Marguerite Robertson won the FV55-60 category race, with a time of 03:35:03. Ms Robertson continued her recent success which has seen her winning her cat races at the Great Scottish Half Marathon and the Dumfries and Strathcarron Hospice 10ks.

26.2 RRC/Kippex runner Ann Bath, who won the Vets AC 5000m Championship at Kingston earlier this year, showed that she was just as good in longer distances earning third spot in the FV60+ race, the Surrey based 61 year old crossed the line in 3:54:26. Hunters Bog Trotter Fionn Nairn finished fifth in the FV45 race. The 47 year old was also the first placed female Scot, completing the course with a chip time of 03:17:01.

The first Scot to cross the line was Casey Morgan who placed 125th. Running in his third marathon of the year, the Shettleston Harrier achieved a personal best of 2:49:14.

Under Three Hours

Some 9 Scots finished the race in less than three hours with Surrey based Paul Bowden claiming second Scot in 2:51:12 ahead of Kenneth Campbell in 2:53:31. First Scot MV35+ was Laurent Zandonella in 2:53:38

Scots Women

The second Scots woman was Lorraine Brown in 3:26:20, with third place going to Alison Wilson with a time of 3:32:32.

Lorna Gall

Motherwell Athletics member Lorna Gall (F35) completed the 26.2 miles in 4:17:02, she told www.scottishrunningguide.com:
"I thought the race was fantastic. I have run a few marathons: New York; Edinburgh; London and Berlin but this was the one I have enjoyed the most. It had just the right amount of support along the route, not too busy so that you are desperate for some peace and quiet, yet enough that when you are flagging someone was bound to say "great running" as you went past. The organisation was also superb. Good runners-only area at the start with an announcer keeping people organised and aware of the time etc, lots and lots of marshals who were very friendly and encouraging.

The route was lovely, through parks and tree lined streets as well as the city centre. It was maybe a bit hillier than I would have liked but you can't have everything.

I did Berlin five weeks ago I had a really bad time with the heat and I didn't really fully recover before this race. So, I decided to take it easy and just enjoy it. I ran much slower than my PB but I thoroughly enjoyed myself and would recommend this marathon to anyone. It's simply a far superior all round experience, even if those hills make a PB a bit harder to achieve."

10,000 Runners

A total of 10,413 athletes, 202 from Scotland, completed the Lifestyle Sports - adidas Dublin Marathon. Jim Hamilton (MV55) was the last Scot to cross the line, completing the 26.2 miles in 6:53:49 to place 10,235th.
