Dunfermline and Penicuik

Members of Dunbar Running Club took part in two more 10k races this
week, with Steve Pattison and Jamie Cherrie taking their total to
three in the week after their performances at the Edinburgh 10K on
Sunday 6th.

Wednesday night saw the running of the Auld Town 10K in Dunfermline's
Pittencrieff Park in which 334 runners completed the course. Stuart
Hay finished in 32nd place overall with a time of 38:47, with Steve
Pattison finishing in 42:02, to become the first male in the over 50
category. Anne Hay finished in 45:25, Jamie Cherrie in 46:19 and Mary
Ennis in 51:32.

The Penicuik 10K took place on Saturday in cool, damp conditions but
it didn't discourage the 190 runners who completed the somewhat
challenging course, taking in Pomathorn Hill and Howgate. Stuart Hay
topped his PB of Wednesday night by coming in 14th overall with a time
of 38:32. Steve Pattison finished in 42:37 and there was a bit of
friendly competition between Anne Hay and Jamie Cherrie in the last
mile with Anne finishing one second ahead of her club mate in 46:49.
Fay Stanton finished in 55:27, having recovered from her Paris
Marathon.

Well done everyone.

So What Do You Do At The Weekend......?

With the road-racing season well under way, several members took part
in the BUPA Great Edinburgh Run on Sunday 6th May. Steve Pattison was
the first club member to cross the line in 42:53, with Jamie Cherrie
coming in with a time of 47:44, followed by club mates Hannah Stevens,
Mary Ennis, Lucy Martin and new member Kirsty Walsh taking part in her
first ever race, finishing in an admirable 1:06:19.

The previous day, another new member to Dunbar, Andy Anderson,
completed the tough 22-mile Edinburgh to North Berwick in 3:12:05, the
cooler temperatures in the earlier part of the course making the
running a little more comfortable.

The previous Sunday, Sheila Morrison took part in one of her favourite
races, the Loch Katrine 12K, having also taken part in the Coniston 14
on the 24th March and the Balfron 10K on the 22nd April. The course
for the Balfron race is over quiet country roads and paths, the
undulating course offering a challenging run to all competitors, which
Sheila finished in a creditable time of 54:54. All funds raised are
donated to the Balfron Primary School.

Just a Bit of Fun (allegedly....)

Haddington and East Lothian Pacemakers (HELP) are twenty five years
young this year, so, as part of the celebrations, there is an
invitation to take part in a 25K fun run in September (date to be
confirmed).

No comments please about the Carfrae Mill to Gifford and the Goat's
Gallop being described as "fun" (only is you like steep descents after
the long climb up!). Only joking - these are both seriously good runs
with a bit of banter along the way, some brilliant views and a wee get
together after, so a 25 Km fun run organised by Haddington is bound to
be something worth taking part in!

Keep an eye on the club news for confirmed dates.

Remember the Haddington 5 mile is on Saturday 2nd June at 3pm - for
further details see www.born2run.co.uk or www.helprunningclub.org.uk
