A number of East Lothian club runners enjoyed their first road race of the season when they took part in the Lasswade Athletics Club 10 Mile race on Sunday 1st March.  The race, which has gained popularity in recent years, gives the runners a few challenges with a few steep climbs along the way, as well as a final uphill to the finish line.
