Some were chasing the "win", some were chasing a "time" and some were just out for the sheer hell of it (perhaps some did it to work up a thirst for the night?)
One runner even chose the event to herald their return to racing after a prolonged absence!

returning two weeks later on 5th January.
By way of seeing in 2012, how about taking part in the Black Bun Run
on Hogmanay! Those familiar with this will know it is a nice dash
round a circuit of about a mile and a half - starting and finishing
opposite the Mason's Arms in Dunbar. This is open to members, their
families and friends (that includes children) and commences at 7:00
pm, whatever the weather.
If you don't over-indulge and fancy a New Years' Day run - there's
always the Portobello Prom run. Good fun and only four miles. Keep
an eye on the Porty website for details.
Merry Christmas everyone.

First back in the 10k race was Joe Bourhill knocking about 7 minutes off his handicap time, while Andy Sheldrick got in a bit early London training and knocked 4 minutes off his handicap to cross the line first in the half in a time of 1:40. While Santa's little helper Jamie bagged the prize for best costume!
All times can be viewed HERE while some extra photos can be viewed HERE.
Thanks to Frank for stopwatch duties and to Jim for the big box of sweeties - "they also serve who only stand and wait"
