Representing Edinburgh University Hares & Hounds, Lothian Running Club’s Sarah Inglis made a welcome return to form at the weekend by leading home 54 runners to win the Women’s category of the Glasgow University 5 mile Road Race.
The race starts in the Garscube Sports Complex on the outskirts of Glasgow, it then follows a 2 lap course around quiet roads with a good balance of flat running and some hilly sections.
On a bitterly cold but at times sunny afternoon the runners had to battle against a mix of wind, rain and hail during the race.
Undeterred by the elements, Sarah turned in a resolute performance to cross the finish line in 28 minutes 47 seconds to repel the challenge of nearest pursuers Gemma Rankin[Kilbarchan AC] 29.02 and Lesley Chisholm[Garscube Harriers]29.03.
In the overall mixed male/female classification Sarah finished well up in 16th of the 187 finishers.
