Three of our parkrun community took on marathon efforts on Sunday, including your regular event report writer thus the lateness of this post!
Sam Finlayson took on the Aberdeen Kiltwalk for a cause very close to her heart, well done Sam.
Meanwhile a few miles South, Vicki Glazier ran the Edinburgh Marathon in just over 3 hours and 56 mins, that's a fantastic time, very well done Vicki. Yours truly didn't have such a good time, literally, but was great to be cheered on twice on the route by Vicki's husband Simon and the kids, your shout outs were much appreciated!
