Feels Like Doing the Cross-Country Again....!

A number of Dunbar Running Club members made the trip to Norham to
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.
