16 Dunbar runners (plus support) went to Portobello on Thursday to take part in this short, fast race.
Conditions were warm and, perhaps, a little breezy for the return leg, but some good times were posted and a few trophies bagged along the way.
Farnk and Ian's pictures can be viewed HERE while the results and even more pictures are to found at the Portobello web site.

More than a few dedicated web footed runners splashed their way around the latest of the Summer Series courses in torrential rain. The bonus wet t-shirt competition was won by Neil Jones.
UPDATE: Results, as ever, can be found at the Summer Series Website ( http://www.eastlothiansummerseries.blogspot.com/ )

runners from heading to to East Linton for the Traprain Law Hill Race. It
was a wet, muddy and slippery course, but Rhona Anderson held off some
fierce competition to win the women's race. Good runs from Grant, Stuart,
Richard, Neil, Anne and Lee too. Watch this space for the results.

These are going to be given to all members (senior and junior) and also handed out at our next race (Doon Hill).
This is part of our 25th anniversary celebrations. But we want a design that's produced by one of our members.
What we need is a design that covers a maximum area of 24cm x 48cm and can only have three colours: green, black and white (club colours). The design can be a lot smaller and repeated (or "tiled" over the print area.)
While not essential we would prefer something that's relevant to running, relevant to Dunbar and reflects the fact that the club is 25 years old (1986-2011).
We only have a couple of weeks to choose a design so the deadline is tight and the closing date is Wednesday 22nd June.
Please submit your designs via the usual club email address. Entries can be any of the usual format files (jpg, gif, bmp etc).
So get designing now.. Remember there's no prize as such, other than the satisfaction of seeing your design on loads of other runners...

Just a short message to invite you or your club to enter one or more teams for the 2011 Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay Race on Sunday 11th September.
The race is named in memory of our friend and clubmate Simon who died tragically from pancreatic cancer in 2008, aged 47. The proceeds from the race will go to support research into this terrible disease.
As you may know, the race is a 42k relay with 2,110m of ascent, run in four stages for teams of five runners. After temporary changes to Legs 2 and 4 last year, the 2011 race reverts to its previous route, which starts and finishes in Comrie village in Perthshire and follows a highly scenic route up and around the hills surrounding Glen Lednock.
Legs 2 and 3 cover rough mountain terrain, while Legs 1 and 4, although challenging, are closer to trail races.
Last year 35 teams took part and we hope to see as large a field again in 2011. We can't guarantee sunshine on the day, although the weather has been kind in previous years, but we can offer
° category and leg prizes provided by our sponsors, The Famous Grouse Experience
° a barbecue (included in the team entry fee)
° what we hope will again be a very enjoyable and competitive race.
