Not a Bad Weekend Then......

Eight members of the club travelled to Lauder to take part in the 9th
Thirlestane Castle Run on Sunday. The multi-terrain 5-mile race was a
little testing for the runners, but was fortunately less muddy than
previous years. Ian Sills took the prize for first veteran, with
Stuart Hay taking the trophy for second veteran. Steve Pattison had
another good race, joined by Jamie Cherrie, Anne Hay, Mary Pattison,
Val Herring and Theresa Leslie.

On the same day Graeme Jones achieved a personal best for the 10K with
a time of 36:22, taking first place in the Clydebank Scottish
Challenge. Another personal best time was also achieved recently by
Jenny MacFarlane in the Glasgow Half Marathon, finishing the course in
1:49:20.

On Saturday Ian Rowland took 20th place, with a time of 3:29, in the
24th Two Breweries Hill Race. The race starts at Traquair House,
Innerleithen, finishing at Broughton, with the tough 18-mile course
taking in 4,900 feet of climb. At the same time club mate Sheila
Morrison took part in the Race against Rabies in Holyrood Park. The
5.5 km run representing 1 metre for every 10 people who die each year
from rabies, with all sponsorship raised on the day aiding the
Alliance for Rabies Control.

Well done everyone!
