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.
