Dumfries Half Marathon
22nd September 2013
Dumfries Running Club invites you to run in our 2013 Half Marathon. Now in it's 32nd year, the race sees runners of all levels enjoy spectacular scenery and stunning views. Starting in the historic Crichton grounds, the route heads along the Bankend road and through Glencaple. The race follows the banks of the river Nith to finish at Kingholm Park.
Further details can be found under the 'Club Races' tab on the website.
We are a running club to suit all types of runners, from complete beginners to those competing in International events. Our club focuses on the social elements of running as well as the sport itself. We host two road races each year, the 5 miles Holywood Stroll in May and the Dumfries Half Marathon in September. From 2013 the Club has also taken on an organisational role in the annual Criffel Hill race.
The club meets on Tuesdays & Thursdays for a 6:45pm start. Tuesday is a social club run with various distances available whereas Thursday consists of trackwork, hillwork, or speedplay for those newer to speedwork. A beginners/slower group meet on Mondays for a 6:30pm start and on Sunday a group meet at Nunholm at 9:00am.
We meet at Dumfries Sports Club, Nunholm Road, Dumfries from where in the summer we venture out on the quiet country roads and on the darker winter nights run under the street lights in Dumfries. Why not try us without commitment and if you enjoy it then join us!
