take part in the multi terrain Stewart Black Memorial Castle Bank
Challenge on Thursday 28th June. The heavy rain that had continued
all day made parts of the course a little treacherous by the river
side, but most runners posted reasonable times over the 5.8 km course.
Ian Sills took 2nd place in the event, finishing in 21:06, with Ian
Rowland achieving sixth place with 22:04, followed by Graeme Jones in
22:15. This meant the threesome took away the team prize, the Stewart
Black Memorial trophy. Stuart Hay (22:29), Richard Taylor (22:49),
Neil Teather (25:30), Anne Hay (who was award the prize for first
female - 25:40), Frank Weissgerber (25:46) and Keith Mills (41:16) all
had a good, if rather soggy, race.
The following evening saw a considerably bigger field taking part in
the Black Rock 5 at Kinghorn, Fife. Steve and Mary Pattison
thoroughly enjoyed the event with Steve finishing with an excellent
time of 32:30 and Mary coming in well up the field in 40:10.
