Some Recent Races (well, ones we know about.....)

The Bupa Great Edinburgh Run (10K) took place on Sunday 3rd May with Jamie Cherrie and Alex Curran both completing the course round the centre of Edinburgh.  Jamie finished in 48:05 and Alex in 55:20.
The previous day was the slightly shortened Edinburgh to North Berwick which, strangely, didn't feel shorter.  Stuart Hay was first Dunbar runner home in 2:13:25, with Richard Taylor only just finishing ahead of Rhona Anderson in a time of 2:24:42.  Rhona's 2:24:49 made her 4th woman overall and she won the prize for 3rd female veteran.  James Addie finished in 2:33:06, Neal Wyatt 2:50:32, Anne Hay 2:53:33, Neil Teather 3:02:34 and Pete McIvor 3:05:35.
On Sunday 26th April, Sheila Morrison took part in one of her favourtie races, the Balfron 10K, finishing in 55:16.  The previous day, Ian Rowland finished the 55th 3 Peaks Race in 3:43:30.  This very popular event starts and finishes in Horton-in-Ribblesdale taking in the ascent and descent of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough summit.
