"BY THE LIGHT...OF THE SILVERY MOON"

"BY THE LIGHT...OF THE SILVERY MOON"

Sadly not a discourse on the movies of Doris Dey, but merely a notice of an impending run….

 

 

Tuesday 23rd November is only one day after the next full moon. As such, weather permitting, it should be an ideal night for a “head-torch” training run.

A few of us are already planning a bit of a longer (but slower) run this Tuesday so if you fancy joining us then please remember to bring your head-torch.

Exact route is not yet known but we will try to arrange it that you can “peel off” to do a slightly shorter run if desired.

FESTIVE HALF (or 10K)

FESTIVE HALF (or 10K)

This years “Festive Half” will be run on Sunday 5th December.

If you don’t feel up to a half then you can always opt for the 10k route.

Both races start and end at Hallhill. Remember, this is a handicap race and the idea is that we all end as close to 12:00 as we can. So, if you think it’ll take you 1:40 to do the half you would be started at 10:20 etc. Both routes take in John Muir Country Park.

Soup, sandwiches etc. will be laid on after the race.

LOST

LOST

Did anyone (well any bloke) accidently pick up a high-viz bib on Tuesday last that doesn’t belong to them?

If so, Stuart is keen to be reunited with it!

Cheers.

Paying too much to enter marathons?

If you have ever thought marathon entry fees are going up and up then this maybe for you.
 
Whilst preparing for the upcoming Newcastle Town Moor Marathon my attention was brought to this web site which I thought might be of interest to some of you.

Official Register of London marathon Runners 2001-2010

'THE REGISTER' IS AVAILABLE TO VIEW AND PURCHASE AT Footworks 14/15

Many of your members at Dunbar Running Club have probably run the
London Marathon, I would therefore be grateful if you could bring this
publication to their attention.

Any of your members that have run London in the last ten years will
find that their name, time and position is recorded in 'The

other features.

It is an indispensable reference guide and a permanent record of
personal achievement.

Please be in touch if I can be of any further assistance.

HOLIDAY SNAPS III

HOLIDAY SNAPS III

“I’m Dunbar – fly me.”

Some people can’t even wait till they’re on the plane to pose for pictures for our competition.

Sadly the vest was every bit as clean and pristine on the return flight L
