Six Haddies raced the Ceres 8 mile Road Race and recorded some excellent times for the club.

The Fife AC organised race follows a hilly route starting in Ceres, running up through Woodside at the halfway point then following a downhill finish back into Ceres.

Mike Reilly ran a course PB and finished first Haddie home in 52.50, closely followed by Eric Anderson in 52.59, Ross Young 55.36, Fiona Cruickshanks 1.02.33, Pamela Cruickshanks 1.06.55 and Jacqui McDonald 1.21.16.

Eric Anderson was the sole Haddie representative at the Path of Condie half marathon which was held on Saturday morning.

The race is described as a ‘tough half marathon with attitude and altitude’.

Not recommended as a first-time half marathon due to the challenging route.

Eric finished the circular hilly route in a time of 1.35.39.
