Festive Races

A bit more notice than usual - the date for the Festive Half Marathon and 10K will take place on Sunday 7th December.
For those of you who have never taken part before, this is an informal event for Dunbar Running Club members (and friends or family who would like to take part), members of HELP and MADAC.  Fancy dress is optional - we have had a few Santas, elves, snowmen etc. over the last few years.

The idea in the past has been that the race has is handicapped with the aim of everyone finishing at 12:00 (or as near as possible). This year we are introducing a wee twist, the aim is to beat the clock - in other words you can pick your start time, but to win, you will have to be the last person to start who finishes before noon.  It means no one can give themselves an overly generous time to get round to make sure they hit the finish line before 12:00 (well, you can but you won't be the winner!).

We will send out a reminder nearer the time so we can get an idea of numbers of people wanting to take part - Anne will be taking names and there will be refreshments afterwards at Hallhill.

Perhaps we should have a revival of the competition for club members wearing their kit in the most far-flung places!

Mountain Marathon Navigation

From Robin Sloan :


Reivers Orienteering Club is holding an event on Wednesday September 24th.

 

The OMM (Original Mountain Marathon) is this year being held at the end of October in the Cheviot Hills, right on our doorstep, and we know some local runners have been tempted to enter. Three of our members have planned previous OMMs and know a lot about the technical challenges and navigation techniques.


 ·         Controls can be easy to find in clear weather, but what if the mist comes down?

·         How do you relocate if the ground you are on doesn’t fit the map?

·         What are the ‘rules of thumb’ which allow you to make quick decisions about route choice?

 We’re holding an informal Club Night in Hawick, stating at 7pm with a navigation exercise just to remind everyone how to use a compass, followed by a discussion of hill navigation, with special reference to actual courses and controls used in previous events.

 

Anyone thinking of taking part in a mountain marathon will be welcome, and details of the venue, Wilton Dean Hall in Hawick can be found here.

 

Parking is fairly limited, so it would be useful to have a rough idea of numbers attending – just drop an e-mail to Rob Cranston.

Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay

Hi

Just a short message to invite you and your club to enter one or more teams for the 2014 Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay on Sunday 14th September.

As in previous years, the race is a 42k relay with 2,110m of ascent, run in four stages for teams of five runners. It starts and finishes in Comrie village in Perthshire and follows a highly scenic route up and around the hills surrounding Glen Lednock. Legs 2 and 3 cover rough mountain terrain, while Legs 1 and 4, although challenging, are closer to trail races.

The proceeds from the race go to support research into pancreatic cancer, the disease from which our friend and club mate Simon died tragically in 2008. 

Last year 34 teams took part in a great day of racing, and for 2014 we can offer
  • category and leg prizes
  • a barbecue after the race (included in the team entry fee)
  • what we hope will again be a very enjoyable and competitive race.
Full race information and entry form can be found at http://www.strathearnharriers.org.uk/comriehillsrelayrace.htm

For any questions or more information about the race, please contact me at relay@strathearnharriers.org.uk
