Top Picks At Southside Six

Southside Six start

Bellahouston Harrier, Alastair Scott, won the Southside Six on Sunday in a record time of 1:32:22. It may not be classified as a course record, however, as the route was amended after Linn Park due to roadworks.

The race saw a southside 1-2-3 with Bellahouston Road Runners Matt Williamson and Russell Whittington finishing second (1:33:34) and third (1:33:36). Alastair broke away from the pack of five front runners just before the halfway mark in Rouken Glen Park and finished over one minute ahead of the second. Fastest female was Katie White, in 1:40:35. The Garscube Harrier rose to prominence last year after winning Liverpool Marathon despite breaking her fibula during the race.

Around 300 competitors headed to Queen's Park for the 16 mile event which goes through six of the most scenic parks in Glasgow's southside. The midpoint runner was Stuart Clark of Glasgow South Roadrunners who completed the race in 2:09:11.

Participants included radio and television presenter Bryan Burnett who said afterwards: "I am lucky enough to work for some of the world's best race organisers, but I would like to congratulate the team behind The Southside Six on a tremendous race. Great route, friendly marshals, brilliant atmosphere and a post race soup, goodie bag and T-shirt were also first class."
