Invitations to the Torness Christmas handicap, as detailed below, are open to all Dunbar runners. If you are interested please email your name and expected result time to firstname.lastname@example.org by Fri 11th December. It's a handicap race so authentication of any estimated times submitted may be requested. If it's any help, Ian Rowland ran the same course last year in 23:31 (in driving rain and a strong headwind). I'm afraid we can't offer access to the plant so post race showers etc will not be available. The North Sea may be used as a suitable alternative, if you're hardy and mildly unhinged!
The Torness Xmas Race (aka The Bob Wilson Handicap) will be held during lunchtime on 18th December, 1st runner usually sets off at about 12pm.

I work in the Buchanan Clinic, Orthotics clinic, on Home Street
Edinburgh. We assess for & fit all different types of insoles & braces
to people with foot, ankle, knee, hip & back problems. I wondered if
this would be something some of the club members would be interested
in & if so I could post out further information if you could send me
an postal address.

Well the results are in.
40% of respondents claim they do less running during the winter months – no doubt spending more time gyrating around their living rooms hooked up to the latest “Wii-for-the-home-bound”.
A reassuring 48% attempt to maintain an average mileage and 10% positively love the cold and dark and try to get out and do a bit more than usual.
Anyway. Till next time… eyes right for our next poll.
