National 50K - Perth Ultrafest

Gerry Craig took part in the 50k on Saturday the 4th of September and sent in the following post.Gerry Craig

Lovely sunny day with a slight breeze and mid 60s perfect ultra running conditions.  21 laps of 1.5 miles on a nearly flat circuit around North Inch Park in Perth. 

The 50k set off with the 100k 2 hours after the 24hr race had begun so plenty of runners for company but quite confusing trying to figure out positions.  Race plan thrown out the window when at the pre race briefing we were told no garmins were allowed as this is against the competition rules so I was just going to have to use the lap official clock to judge my pace. All went to plan but pace slowed slightly on last 4 laps although I would have had a faster last lap if the officials hadn't got my lap count wrong and told me I had 2 to go when starting my last lap, thankfully they sorted this and cycled out to tell me but as I only had 800mtrs to go it didn't make much difference to my time.

Finished in 3rd place and 2nd vet in 3hrs 50mins 26secs, equivalent to 5 10km races in a row at 46mins each.

Congratulations to those VP-Glasgow athletes who were selected to represent Scotland in the Sainsbury’s UK School Games in Gateshead, 2nd-5th September. These were: Chloe Lambert, Andrea Gaffney, Chris Barnes, Max Aitchison and John Mulhern.

VP-Glasgow’s women did well on the day, coming 3rd out of 8, but overall they finished 7th in the League. The improved performance in this match was largely due to an increased turnout (82% of events filled, compared to 62% in the last match) from our athletes.
