A TRIO of athletes with PH Racing Club were celebrating after claiming medals at the recently held Scottish Masters Indoor Championships.

Held at Glasgow's Emirates Arena, Ed Norton doubled up over 800, for which he ran a time of two minutes and 48.11 seconds, and 1500 metre distances, two events in which he was the defending V70 champion, and he went on to retain his titles in both.

Also running the 1500m were Julie Menzies and Paul Kieran, with the former taking home a gold in the V50 category, timing at 5:24.63, while Kieran was happy to add a V45 silver to his recent indoor 3000m gold, with a time of 4:28.67.

Both of these athletes also took part in the Scottish Cross Country Masters Championships event at Tollcross Park in Glasgow, where Paul was part of the bronze medal-winning V40/45 team along with Ben Hukins, Andy Davis and Mark Ryan.

Davis also picked up a second bronze medal in the individual V45 event, clocking 30:45 for the 8000m, while Hukins was fastest for PH, finishing 10th in the V40s in 30:18

In the women's 6000m race PH's sole representative was Menzies, who finished fourth V50, just six seconds behind bronze medalist Rhona Van Rensburg of Fife A.C.

PH runners were also amongst the prizes in the recently-held Devilla Forest trail races, hosted by Carnegie Harriers, with Bryan Innes, in the 15k run, finishing as the second V40, and fifth overall, in 57:54.

Aaron Bennet, in 59:23, won the junior prize; Judy Turner (69:49) was second V50; and Ian Stewart, in the 5k race, was the first V60 athlete home in 19:41.

Elsewhere, Kristin Lownie enjoyed a second place finish in the Kirkintilloch 12.5k (50:41), with Martin McNellis, the first V60, just under a minute behind, whilst Louise Lessels (56:18) and daughter Emma (62:25) were third V40 and under-20 respectively.
