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.
