Outdoor records - Bellahoustoun to Berlin
The Bellahouston Park Track, Glasgow.

 

The former running track in Bellahouston Park was refurbished in 2006 and converted into a community cycle track. The oval track is 420m long. (about a quarter of a mile, 0.26) It is mainly used by cyclists and is available for informal use, except when an event is in progress. The track has become popular with skaters because of its smooth surface and presents one of the best places for timing distances in an endeavour to improve speed.

Women's Inline Skate Record Lap Times (Bellahoustoun)
  • All times to be from a standing start.

  • If you wish to submit a record lap time you must have another person present, not necessarily a skater, to verify your time on the track.

  • Breaking records is not an acceptable excuse to cause disruption or inconvenience to other track users.

  • This is a shared track we must make sure that there is no reason for anyone to complain about speeding skaters.

MARATHON RECORDS
Women's World Number 2 (2019)
Women's World Number 3 (2023):
Marianne conquers the Double Marathon in Berlin (again).

 

Yes, she did it again!  Our star Scotia Skater, Marianne Wilson has done the double again, repeating her 2nd place podium success of 2018 with another top 3 finish in the Berlin Skate/Run double marathon in 2023.

 

Over the years, many skaters have taken part in marathons throughout the world, the biggest of which takes place through the streets of Berlin, the most spectacular and fastest race of the World Cup Season, whether you are competing on wheels on the Saturday, or running shoes on the Sunday.

 

Each year an elite group of athletes take part in the Berlin Double Marathon, a unique event in the world where competitors compete in the Berlin Skate Marathon on the Saturday afternoon, followed less than 24 hours later by the Running Marathon on the Sunday morning.

Having secured 2nd place in the women's combined marathon standings in 2019, in a weekend of torrential rain, a dry September weekend in Berlin in 2023 meant a personal best time in her skate marathon a great start to her double attempt and she didn't disappoint as despite suffering sever cramp in the final stages of her marathon run on Sunday, she still managed to obliterate her completion in her age category to come out top, and only missed out on a repeat of her overall second place by a few seconds. An absolutely amazing achievement!

 

In a weekend where some 60,000 competitors took part in the marathons, and an elite group raced in both, to be crowned Woman's World Number 2 is an amazing achievement but to follow it up with a 3rd place 4 years later just shows how talented a skater (and runner) we have as a Scotia Skater.
