And the winner of Scottish Athletics Master of the year is …

On Saturday 23rd November Scottish Athletics held their annual awards night at the Hilton Hotel, Glasgow. With guest speaker Paula Radcliffe and Scottish Running A listers including Calum Hawkins attending the evening it was a certainly a night that one certain Teviotdale Harrier will never forget.

It was the second year in a row that this individual was nominated for the coveted Master of the Year award, unfortunately missing out last year.

However good things come to those who wait( along with a lot of hard work) and it with delight we can announce Alastair ‘Sammy’ Walker as Scottish Athletics Master of the Year 2019 .

A massive well done to Sammy on this superb achievement, you have done the club proud!

We may be a small club, but we have huge hearts and a body full of determination … “Get in there Sammy boy!”

Another World Final For Welsh

Colin Welsh has secured a second World Masters finals spot with a gutsy run in todays 1500m first round.

Racing in a tight heat, Colin got his tactic’s spot on and with his teeth clenched he crossed the line fifth and secured one of the eight fastest loser spots.

Stopping the clock at 4:11.40, finishing just behind M35 800m gold medallist and fellow GB & NI runner, Aaron Brown, qualifying Colin eighth fastest of the 12 finalists.

“My plan was to just follow Aaron and that worked out great,” explained Colin.

There’s not much time for recovery as tomorrow mornings final is scheduled for a 09:46 start.

So what would an athlete do the night before a World final?: “Going out for tea at 8pm and then just back for a wee chill before an early start,” said Colin.
