The Pentlands 7 Reservoirs multi-terrain half marathon took place on Sunday.

This tour around the Pentland Hills started at the Threipmuir reservoir and the challenging route took in the Loganlea, Glencorse, Bonaly, Torduff, Clubbiedean and Harlow reservoirs, before finishing back at Threipmuir reservoir.

The dry sunny weather meant that conditions underfoot were good but there were still mud and water challenges as well as tough uphill and downhill sections to contend with.

Representing Linlithgow AC, Scott Hyslop finished in around 1 hour 45 mins, and Gerry McArdle finished in around 1 hour 50.

Andrew Fischbacher finished first at Falkirk parkrun with a new personal best time of 17:09. Also setting personal bests over the 5K distance, Hilary Stocks was 43rd (7th F) in a time of 22:38 and at Edinburgh parkrun Darren Dick was 90th with a personal best of 21:28.

Winchburgh’s Jill Horsburgh was among a record field of 228 finishers in Saturday’s Gravy Pud Fell Race at Glossop in Derbyshire.

This popular off road fell race is run over a course of approximately five miles and starts and finishes at The Bull’s Head pub in Tintwhistle.

Running in the FV50 category Jill, who is a Lothian Running Club member, finished in 166th place overall and 28th female in 55m 33s.

The Finch family from Lothian Running Club were among a total of 261 competitors who took part in the inaugural Perth Parkrun on Saturday.

The race held on the North Inch was the 236th UK event in a series that gives nearly 380,000 runners the opportunity to better their times over a 5k course every Saturday morning.

The club also had runners in similar events at Falkirk, Strathclyde and Edinburgh.

Colin Meek and Donald Shaw recorded new personal best times at Falkirk as did David Mabon at Strathclyde.
