Recent Races

The Heriot-Watt Round the Grounds 5K trail race took place on Saturday 21st March, with four Dunbar runners taking part in the event.  Stuart Hay, Brian Davidson, Anne Hay and Theresa Leslie enjoyed the race, making the most of the spring-like weather.


The previous Sunday was the Meadows Marathon – a half marathon event forming 8 laps of the Meadows.  Neil Jones and Steve Pattison both took part in the popular event.  The previous week saw Steve competing in his 60th half marathon at Inverness.  The weather was particularly cold, with the competitors having to deal with snow and sleet, as well as chilly winds.  Steve finished in 1:38:21 and Jamie Cherrie in 1:47:45, both receiving a commemorative hat for the 25th year of the event. On the same day, Sheila Morrison travelled to Sauchie, Alloa to run in the Gartmorn 6 finishing in 56:51. 


Kings Buildings was the venue, the day before, for the Edinburgh University 5 mile Road Race.  Graeme Jones had a good run in 32.04 with Neil Jones finishing in 36:57.
