Duck challenge in Abbey Dash fades
ATHLETICS: Scottish athletes dominated the Abbey Dash in Leeds yesterday.
Adam Craig (Inverclyde) broke away from a strong field on the return from Kirkstall Abbey to finish with a lead of more than 100 metres ahead in a time of 29:08.
The women’s race was won by Fionnuola Ross (Shettlestone) in 33:31 narrowly beating fellow Scot Mhairi MacLennan (Edinburgh University).
Leeds City’s Claire Duck looked set for victory when leading after the halfway point but stitch put paid to her chances and she finished fourth in 34:00, a disappointment but still a personal best.
