Pair go the ex­tra mile in mem­ory of pal

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Ruther­glen man has been re­mem­bered by one of his pals who com­pleted the Ed­in­burgh half marathon in his honour.

Gor­don MacDuff was only 43-years-old when he col­lapsed and died of a heart at­tack when out for a Satur­day morn­ing run on King’s Park Av­enue in Fe­bru­ary 2014.

His fam­ily have been rais­ing money in his honour since and his friend and for­mer team­mate at Ruther­glen Ama­teurs, Scott Crawford, de­cided to do his bit.

He and pal Michael Jamieson took part in the 13-mile run to raise money for the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion. So far the duo have raised £1,247. Gor­don’s widow, Heather, and daugh­ters Aimee,8, and Chloe, 5, ex­tended their thanks to the pair for their ef­forts.
