Well, that went well....

The sunny weather on Easter Saturday encouraged record numbers to take
part in the annual Belhaven Best Dunbar Boundary Race. The 10K race
started and finished at Hallhill Healthy Living Centre, where many of
those taking part enjoyed refreshments after the event.

The winner, Paul Arcari of Kilbarchan, completed the course in a time
of 32:32, with Stephen Maniam of City of Edinburgh finishing in 33:23,
followed by Dave Wright of HBT in 33:27. The first lady was Kate
McKinnon of Carnegie in 38:44 with Debra Murray of City of Edinburgh
coming in second place on 39:55, with the unattached Helen Dougal
claiming third prize, as well as the prize for first female veteran.
Dunbar's Rhona Anderson took the 2nd veteran ladies trophy in 42:29.

Jeff Farquhar of Pitreavie took the male veteran trophy with a time of
34:29, with Carnethy's Stewart Whitle taking the 2nd in 34:53. Martin
Cladwell of Corstorphine took the male 50+ trophy and Duncan Archibald
of Pitreavie taking the 60+ in 38:18. Helen Sim of Carnegie took the
female 45+ trophy in 38:02 with Val Herring of Dunbar coming in 24
seconds behind to take the 55+ trophy. Ian Sills took the trophy for
first Dunbar runner in 35:54. Carnegie were awarded both the male and
female team trophies.

Several other Dunbar Club members also took part on the day, with
Karen Page (47:14) and Clarissa Berry (52:16) celebrating their return
to racing with a home run. Well done!

Race Director, Stuart Hay, thanked Belhaven Brewery for their
sponsorship. He also thanked all the marshals and officials and
Hallhill for the use of the facilities on the day.

A special thank you to Isabelle Taylor who took the role of official
photographer on the day.
