A Bus Load......

Twelve members of Dunbar Running Club took part in the Emtelle
Jedburgh Half Marathon on Sunday. The course, running mainly through
the surrounding countryside, is quite a popular one with the East
Lothian club and the weather on the day proved exceptionally warm.

Ian Sills finished in 9th place overall with a time of 1:18:50 and
took the prize for second veteran. Stuart Hay finished 21st in
1:21:25, with George Gilhooley just over a minute behind in 25th
place. Graeme Jones finished well in 1:35:33 and Steve Pattison had
another good run with 1:37:43. Anne Hay and Hannah Stevens finished
with only 35 seconds between them, with Jamie Cherrie coming in at
1:47:46, enjoying his 40th half-marathon to date. Neil Teather, Mary
Pattison and Theresa Leslie had good, steady runs. New member Neil
Jones, running his first ever half marathon and his first time in club
colours, finished in a creditable 2:00:21.
