Purves is toast of Gala Harriers

Gala Harrier Anne Purves found herself breakfasting alongside Paula Radcliffe, Brendan Foster and Haile Gebresalassie at the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run in Glasgow.

She made toast with Tiki Gelana, who took a podium place in the half-marathon, unlike Haile who sadly had to pull out.

Anne finished the 10km in 1 hour 03.23 and Lee Myers, in training for the New York Marathon, clocked 1.49.52 in the half-marathon. New member Alister Munro finished the 10km race in 47.04.

On the same day, Arlene Botha tackled the Glencoe Marathon, which takes in the arduous Devil’s Staircase on its 26.2-mile route.
