PH RACING Club's in-form women added to their recent East District Cross-Country League win with another dominant performance on Sunday.

They were in action at the SVHC (Scottish Veteran Harriers Club) Masters Relays at Strathclyde Country Park and came home with a victory that was achieved by a comfortable margin.

The race is open to anyone over the age of 35 and consists of three laps of the loch for the ladies – and four for the men – and Kristin Lownie took on the lead leg for PH, covering the course in a time of 22 minutes and three seconds, the second-fastest female leg of the day.

She handed over to Karen Kennedy, who maintained her team's lead with a fourth-fastest leg of 22:50, and allowed Alison McGill – with the day's third-quickest leg of 22:28 – to anchor the team home for a well-deserved victory.

PH were also represented by six men's teams and their A side earned a top-10 finish.

Andrew Wright took on stage one and covered his 3.7-mile lap in 20:01 to make the day's top-10 fastest male times, and handed over to Rab Sellar, on his return from injury, in fifth place.

He ran a solid 21:48 before Wright Beveridge clocked 21:58 in the penultimate leg, with Tommy Lawrence bringing the team home in 22:25.

There were strong performances by the other five teams, with Martin Butcher clocking 21:49 on the opening leg for the B team, and John Crookston posting an impressive 22:18 for the male 50, team who themselves finished third in that category.

The other members of the team were Iain Taylor (22:04), Alan Cockburn (23:53) and Dennis Howett (25:46) while, in addition to the team prize, Kennedy also claimed first place in the V45 category for the 2017/18 SVHC Grand Prix.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, Calum Brand, Willie Rennie, Andy Jannetta, Arron Leitch, Aaran Gibb and Pete Simpson took part in the ever-popular Devil’s Burdens hill relay organised by Fife AC.

Some fine performances throughout saw PH finish 21st overall, and 17th in the open senior category.
