Tinto Twin Triumphs


This weekend saw the 30th running of the annual Tinto Twin weekend - a night race on Saturday and a day race on Sunday with overall time deciding the winners. This year the races were Lanark Race Course and Country Park in the dark, and an urban race round Biggar. A select Clyde contingent ran both races, with class wins for Alastair Dunlop (M40), Patrick Walder (M45) and Dave Robertson (M50), and a second place for Iain Mennie (M55).

Earlier this year our clubmate Mirjam raced the Celtman Extreme Triathalon in spectacularly awful conditions in Torridon. The race is 3.4km open water swim, 202km bike ride and 42km run over 2 Munros on Beinn Eighe. The Adventure Show filmed the race and is showing the program on Sunday 8 October 2017 at 7pm on BBC2 (The Adventure Show).
Ty did most of her support, and Dave was the compulsory support runner for the mountain running stage, his story is here.

Many CLYDE athletes spent the first week of August competing at Royal Deeside 2017, 6 days of fantastic competition in some of the best orienteering terrain in the UK.

There were lots of great CLYDE performances, notably Alastair McLeod’s win in the Men’s Premier class M21E, Robin Orr and Donald Petrie were 2nd in M55L and M60L, respectively, and the Mccartney family competed in their first big races and performed extremely well in their first exposure to the tough and technical Deeside forests.

The A course team (Steve Wilson/Thomas Wilson/Lindsay Robertson/Emma Wilson/Donald Petrie/Alastair Dunlop/Simon Gardner) finished 6th and the B course team (Andrew Paterson/Iain Mennie/Christine Patterson/Amelia Petrie/Alex Kemp) finished 12th on their respective courses.
