Getting In a Few Runs.....

The recent report in The East Lothian Courier:
Members of Dunbar Running Club have had a busy month as the road-racing season is well underway.
Ian Rowland, Stuart Hay and Anne Hay took part in the London Marathon on 23rd April with Stuart Hay achieving a personal best time of 3:07:56, knocking over seven minutes of his previous best, demonstrating that the extra training in recent months has paid off. Ian finished in 2:56:28 and Anne in 3:37:35. Other local runners taking part on the day were Malcolm Quinn of HELP (4:32:17) and Lucy-Anne Bonete of Musselburgh and District AC.

On the same day, Ross Combe of Dunbar achieved a very credible time of 3:54:14 in the Lochaber Marathon. Sheila Morrison completed the 40th Round the Houses 10K in Grangemouth in a satisfying 53:10, with Theresa Leslie also having a good race in 55:39. Sheila also achieved 58:45 in one of her favourite races the Balmoral Tartan 10K a week later.

Anne Hay, along with several runners from HELP and also Donald Deans from Musselburgh, took part in the Edinburgh to North Berwick Road Race, finishing in a time of 3:06:34. Club mate Lindsay Brown competed in the BUPA Great Edinburgh Run the following day, completing the 10K course in less than favourable weather conditions in a time of 56:31.
