Sunday 30th

Sunday saw thirteen members of Dunbar Running Club travelling to
Norham, Berwickshire, for the towns' annual 10K road race. The race
started at the east end of the village, crossing the Tweed at the
opposite end, climbing steeply to the top of Bank of Scotland, through
the Ladykirk Estate, with a nice descent back into Norham.

Ian Sills finished 5th overall, claiming the prize for first male
veteran. His club mate Ian Rowland took 7th place in 36:03, closely
followed by Stuart Hay with a personal best time of 36:14. Steve
Pattison followed, with Rhona Anderson taking the prize for 3rd female
overall. Jamie Cherrie was also delighted to achieve a personal best,
with Andrew Anderson, Anne Hay, Hannah Stevens, Mary Pattison, Val
Herring, Sheila Morrison and Theresa Leslie all completing the course.
Dunbar also took the male and female team prizes before heading back
to Dunbar for their own championship presentation.

The run at Norham was the last in a series of 23 races, commencing in
May, and forming the new club championship. Stuart Hay took the first
male prize, having gained just one extra point over Ian Rowland who
took second. Steve Pattison was awarded the third prize. In the
ladies section, Anne Hay took first, Mary Pattison second, and Val
Herring third, with Anne also receiving the championship trophy for
gaining the most points overall.

Thanks again to Amanda for hosting the presentation barbecue and to
Frank - king of the barbecue.
