Amy aims for Beltane good run at Peebles

Whitestone Park, the home of Peebles Rovers Football Club, is the venue for the staging of Peebles Beltane Sports on Sunday, writes John Slorance.

Home hope to win the main event on the programme – the 110m handicap – is Amy Clancy.

Trained by Charlie Russell, Clancy, a former winner of the Jedburgh and Kelso Games, runs from a mark of 17.5m in the main event on a packed card.

Other female Border athletes appearing in the event are Jazmine Tomlinson (17.5m), Martha Douglas (20m), Megan Shiel (22.5m), Jenna Gillan (24m) and Mhairi Henderson (24.5m).

Hawick flyer Dylan Ali, who has blitzed his way to two sprint victories this season in winning the Hawick and Selkirk Games handicaps, competes from scratch.

Moorfoot AC pair Jacob Adkin (20m) and Kobe Stevens (70m) are the local runners in the 1,600m handicap, which also includes fellow Borderers Dean Whiteford (100m), Andrew Thomson (120m), Jordan Taylor (120m) and Alistair Laurie (360m).

A busy afternoon of open and confined senior and junior races completes the card on Sunday.

The games commence at 1.30pm.
