Kilmacolm Running Festival 2019

Kilmacolm Running Festival 2019 took place Sunday 8th September with over 400 participants across our events on the day. The weather was on our side for the first time in a number of years as we got near perfect running conditions for our entrants. Registration opened at 8am for all events with many participants signing up on the day to take part. The first event of the day was the Toddle Waddle of which over 20 young up and coming athletes completed a lap of the park led by Aileen Cameron and Lisa Devlin. Following this, the 3K set off at 9.15am. The first female over the line was Chloe Cameron with a time of 11:26, with the first male being Tayven Adamson in a time of 10:25. Great times by both. 

10.00am brought the turn of the Half-Marathon runners to set-off, piped away by two young pipers Ross Findlater and Samuel Riis. It was local runner Jack Letson who was first over the finish line in this event, with an excellent time of 1:13:18. Sue Hewitson won the female event in a great time of 1:29:58. 

10.30am was the final event of the day, the 10K. Over 100 runners completed the course with Steven Campbell and Ruth Fraser-Moodie being the winners of the male and female events. Steven ran an impressive time of 34:28, with Ruth running a brilliant 39:29. 

It was a great day overall at Birkmyre Park, with music provided by Atlantic Dj's and a BBQ popularly served up by the team from Birkmyre Cafe by Nardini.
