Run­ner smashes women’s record at tenth Tin Farm

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

THE SUN shone for a Camp­bel­town run­ner as she posted 36.36 to smash the Tin Farm se­nior women’s record by 44 sec­onds.

Jen­nifer Martin’s run in the 5.5-mile race, ear­lier this month placed her sixth over­all as she broke the mark set by Si­mone Charnock last year, who was a minute down on her ri­val this year.

Ju­nior Cara Gor­man’s record 40.44 was enough for 17th over­all.

Two new cat­e­gories for male and fe­male su­per vets saw Mid-Ar­gyll’s Stephen Whis­ton set a men’s mark at 36.34 and Camp­bel­town’s Jo­ce­lyn Richard posted 46.02.

For the first time, a 1.1-mile chil­dren’s es­corted race was in­tro­duced with run­ners set­ting off at 10.30am in ad­vance of the adult events. Ruar­idh Camp­bell won the eight-to 10-year- old boys’ and Vi­o­let Camp­bell was the girls’ race win­ner for that dis­tance. Gre­gor Camp­bell won the boys 11-to-13s bat­tle and Eilidh Cameron took the girls’ hon­ours in that age group.

Be­fore the prizes were pre­sented, one of the two or­gan­is­ers, Kirsty Young, pre­sented Lady Lith­gow with a bou­quet in recog­ni­tion of the es­tate’s sup­port for the event.

Two fur­ther bou­quets were given to stal­wart time­keep­ers Mary Sem­ple and Anne McArthur, who have served at all 10 races.

Anne said: ‘The sun has shone on ev­ery event ex­cept one and even that was only marred by show­ers.’

Kirsty added: ‘ Di­nah Bo­som­worth and I were both keen run­ners and started the race to en­cour­age peo­ple to get run­ning.

‘In the past 10 years there’s been a big in­crease in the num­bers run­ning mainly due to Jog Scot­land.

‘The Lith­gows love to see peo­ple out us­ing and en­joy­ing the es­tate and have been very sup­port­ive.’

Cater­ing was by the 19th Ar­gyll Scout Troop who raised £ 340 for their funds.
