Hawick Half-Marathon

Four Dunbar runners travelled to the Borders on Sunday to take part in the Hawick Half Marathon, a challenging course, taking in Clarilaw and Horsleyhill.  Stuart Hay came in second overall in a time of 1:20:59, with Richard Taylor coming in 6th in 1:25:28 – taking three minutes off his previous best for the distance.  Rhona Anderson defended her title as first lady, improving her time from last year and finishing 10th overall in 1:29:49, with Anne Hay coming in further down the field in 1:50:23.

 

The previous Sunday had seen Lee Curtis taking part in the difficult Ben Nevis race finishing in a creditable time of 2:23:43. 

 

At the FreshnLo Great Scottish Run in Glasgow on the same Sunday, Brian Davidson achieved a personal best in the 10K with a time of 43:27, with Theresa Leslie finishing in 1:02:13.  Suzanne McCullough finished her first Half Marathon in 2:03:39, with Katy Gardiner finishing in 2:14:04.

Great North Run

From Lee Curtis (contact Anne if you can't get Lee directly):

I have in my possession two entries for the Great North Run on
September 20th. If anyone at the club are interested, or know anyone
else who may be then (given the short notice) I'll let them go on the
cheap.
