CARFRAEMILL to GIFFORD - Wed 18th August.

HELP have asked if anyone would like to take part in this years Carfraemill to Gifford run.
For anyone unaware of this event it’s a 10 mile route that goes from, as the name suggests, from Carfraemill through and over the Lammermuirs to Gifford (its honestly not that tough a course). The course is mainly on quiet roads, though a small section does go onto footpaths.
A bus takes the runners from Gifford to the start line. It’s not a race - it’s more a sort of mass club run.
The bus leaves the Goblin Ha at 6:30pm to take the runners to the start for 7:00pm.
We have to let HELP know how many of us from Dunbar are going, so please let Stuart or Anne know if you want to go by 6th August.

Holidays, injuries and work commitments all played their part in slightly diminishing the Dunbar presence at the Musselburgh 10k race this weekend.

However, those who did manage to make it thoroughly enjoyed it.

Its always nice to get a nice spread of sandwiches and cakes at a race. But how many clubs do you know that lay on ice cream cones?

Well done to Musselburgh for organising this event.

On Saturday 10th July a team of Dunbar runners joined HELP to race the West Highland Way relay race.

A fantastic weekend was had by all and despite the gloomy predictions of the weatherman the conditions were excellent (as was the scenery and terrain).

Congratulations to HELP for their well deserved victory.

Thanks to HELP for the invite, the hospitality and the flawless organisation and particular thanks to Frank and Paddy for the driving duties.
