‘It would be great to see the world in Union’
Myles Edwards calls for event to be opened up to all
UNION Street mile champion Myles Edwards would like to see the event grow in status in future years.
The 23-year-old Aberdeen AAC middle distance specialist achieved one of his top goals for the summer by sprinting to victory along the city’s main thoroughfare.
Myles clocked 4min 20secs to finish four seconds ahead of club-mate James Joy, while Inverness athlete Stephen Mackay was third in 4:34.
Myles was delighted to win and expressed the hope that more people might be encouraged to take part next year.
He said: “It would be nice to see the race opened up to runners of all abilities.
“It would also be good if an effort was made to perhaps get athletes up from the Central Belt so that we have the best in Scotland racing against each other.”
