There was a home victory in the Jedforest 110 metres sprint handicap with Craig Gillan from the Tweed Leader Jed-Track club landing the £3000 top prize.

Running from a start of 7 metres Gillan broke the tape in 11.43 seconds to edge out Leigh Marshall, Hawick and Keiran Reilly,Edinburgh AC, the latter duo also occupied the minor berths in the 110 metres at the recent City of Edinburgh Running Festival, so a big pay day for one of them must surely be just around the corner.

The all-scratch Borders Athletics 100 metres Championship was won by Tom Holligan, Woodford Green in 11.14 seconds, Donald Tod, Edinburgh AC was runner up with Chris Baillie, Birchfield Harriers third.

The £600 first prize in the Open 800 metres went to the in form Jason McIntosh Kelso in 1m 56.75s.

New Year Sprint winner Dylan Ali, Hawick won the 400 metres handicap from the backmark of 5 metres in 49.84s.

Gillan grabs glory in Jed-Forest Sprint
by Fiona Scott
Southern Reporter
14 July 2014

Craig Gillan was the toast of Jedburgh on Saturday afternoon after he won the Borders’ Athletics blue riband sprint event on his home town track.

The 20-year-old TLJT athlete lifted the 2014 Jed-Forest 110 metres sprint handicap, an event he has dreamed of winning since arriving on the open athletic scene as a raw youngster nine years back.

Gillan began his glory day when romping home to victory in his heat in 11.58 seconds from a mark of 7 metres. Currently studying mechanical engineering at Napier University, the Jed flying machine then booked a place in the final through a cross tie triumph.

The last showdown, which also included Hawick’s Leigh Marshall (5m) and Jack Wilson (12m), plus David McKay of Kelso (14.5m) and Edinburgh twosome Tom Holligan (scratch) and Kieran Reilly (6.5m) had all the makings of being a real humdinger.

After the silence that had fallen over Riverside Park had been broken by the sound of the starter Gerald Paxton’s gun, the six finalists took off in quest of the £3,000 first prize. The outcome was a blanket finish, with Gillan and Marshall the main two involved. It was Gillan who was to get the judges vote after the camera had been consulted. An extremely fast winning time of 11.43 seconds was recorded.

Marshall was placed second, while Reilly got the third spot.
