Six Dunbar runners took part in todays Jedburgh Half Marathon.

Near Perfect conditions and a really nice course helped us on our way through some nice parts of the Scottish Borders. And the brass band that helped us along our way at the 6 and the 9 mile mark was a really nice touch. Provisional times are:

Ian Rowland 1:23 (not a happy chap)
Stuart 1:28:24 (PB)
Frank 1:35
Anne 1:38:57 (PB)
Sheila Morrison 1:57

East District Cross Country Relay

Senior Runners from Dunbar Running Club kicked off the Cross Country
season on Saturday 16th October by competing in the East District
Cross Country Relay. The race was held, in damp but not unpleasant
conditions, in the shadow of the magnificent Floors Castle near Kelso
and along the banks of the River Tweed. Each of the four man team
took it in turn to run the four kilometre course to register a
combined time and finishing position. Thirty seven teams took part
from across the East District with the Dunbar quartet recording a
combined time of 1:01:02 to take 18th place Fellow East Lothian
runners from HELP club also had a team entered into the inaugural race
of the 2004/05 cross country season. They recorded a combined time of
1:06:59 to take 29th place overall. Runners from both clubs are now
looking forward to a hectic winter cross country calendar with races
from across the East of Scotland and the Borders.
