The Sun, The Sea, The Sand.......

The 28th Northumberland Coastal Run took place on Sunday 15th July,
with several Dunbar runners taking part in the scenic 14 mile route
from Beadnell to Alnmouth. The summery weather attracted the crowds
to the beaches who gave great support to everyone competing in the
race. There were 800 finishers in the event – a far cry from the 12
competitors who took part in the inaugural run in 1979.

Ian Rowland of was placed 18th overall, with a time of 1:27:09, with
Ian Sills completing the course in 1:28:11. Stuart Hay had another
good run in 1:43:03 with Graeme Jones finishing only seconds behind in
1:43:24, pleased with his first longer distance run. Frank
Weissgerber; 1:47:57, Anne Hay; 1:51:47, Hannah Stevens; 2:07:15, Mary
Pattison; 2:11:10, Steve Pattison; 2:11:11, Fiona Brewster; 2:15:48,
Val Herring; 2:18:22 and Sheila Morrison; 2:19:01 also had good runs
on the day. Dunbar was awarded third team prize.
