A MEMBER of Pitreavie AAC's endurance running section has completed a golden double with a second ultra success in four weeks.

Kathryn Campbell, who in October topped the bill as the first female home in the Lakes in a Day Ultra Run, was back in long-distance action at the Glenogle Ultra Marathon on November 3 – and enjoyed the same result.

Having already conquered the 50-mile Lakes race, which has an ascent of 4,000 metres and is described by organisers as "inspiring, daunting and stunning in equal measure", she took to the start line in Killin for the 33-mile Glenogle event.

Taking in challenging terrain and the famous Glen Ogle viaduct, Kathryn overcame challenging, wet conditions to finish first lady, and in 19th place overall, in an impressive time of four hours, 35 minutes and 56 seconds.

The next Pitreavie finisher was Craig Chisholm, who placed 69th overall in 5:05.01, and he was followed closely by 14th lady Suzanne Goodall, in 74th place, who posted a time of 5:09.27.

There were also impressive times achieved by Pitreavie athletes Mike Gudgeon, Iain Howatt, David Henderson, Scott Clark, Ally Proven, Isla Hopkins and Morna Fleming, and their success marked the club's largest contingent to compete in an ultra event, emphasising a growing appetite for long-distance running among members.

On the same weekend, there were also Pitreavie AAC Endurance athletes in action in cross-country races including the hilly Templeton 10-mile race in Dundee, the Auchterarder 10K, the men's 10K in Edinburgh, and even the New York Marathon.

In addition, they topped 150 members for the first time this month, as their success continues to grow at a wide range of events and distances.
