20 years on Lewis follows in fathers footsteps to win Kenmore Hill Race writes Shane Fenton

Scotland's only evening Highland Games at Kenmore attracted it's biggest crowd in recent years.

In sweltering conditions visitors from all over the globe made there way to the Kenmore Sports Field where they witnessed an action packed evening of fun and entertainment, and thankfully there wasn't a midge in sight.

As ever at Kenmore the regular games athletes were joined by the many visitors who wished to take part which included a trio of very good athletes from a running club in Southern California.

Hill race winner Lewis Pentecost from the Falkirk Victoria Harriers Club was following in the footsteps of his father John who won the race 20 years prior. Lewis beat his fathers time by almost 3 minutes.

In the 100 metres handicap David Allan,Balloch broke the tape in 10.08 seconds to pip brother and sister Cameron and Delaney Harris from the Southern California Club. Allan produced another fine run in the 400 metres handicap to hold off the challenge of Craig Robertson,Logirait and Lewis Pentecost,Falkirk Victoria. The 800 metres handicap saw Robertson come through from the backmark to break the tape in 1 minute 57 seconds with  Allan second and Ellie Walker,Glasgow in third.

Fraser Taylor from Paisley won the Boys 100 metres handicap as well as being first junior home in the hill race. The Girls 100 metres was won in fine style by Makenna Harris of Southern California.

In the 8k hill race Lewis Pentecost Falkirk Victoria came home a clear winner in 39 minutes 16 seconds, second place and first female went to seasoned hill runner Jennifer Gane,unattached.

Seven competitors contested the heavy events and when Lukasz Wenta finally managed to toss the caber you could have heard the roar in Aberfeldy! The highland dancing proved as popular as ever while the childrens and sack races attracted well over 100 runners in the various age categories.

Full results will be posted later.

Footnote:The current heatwave appears to be helping to draw the crowds to Highland Games, in recent weeks the Games at Strathmore,Cupar,Ceres and now Kenmore have all enjoyed their biggest crowds in recent years.
