A relative newcomer to the Marathon following success as a mountain runner, Robbie put in a stunning run at Gold Coast 2018, working his way through the field to take bronze, Scotland’s final medal of the Games.
Following bronze at the 2015 World Mountain Running Championships, Robbie made his Marathon debut in 2016, finishing 18th in London and improving to 16th in 2017 as he grabbed the qualifying standard for Gold Coast and the World Championships. Unfortunately injury prevented him from taking up his place at the World Championships but he bounced back to be at his best at the Commonwealth Games.
