Coll Half Marathon and 10k

16/08/2014

Two members of Dumfries Running Club headed over to the island of Coll to take part in the Half marathon on the 16th August. The event is now in its 5th year and comprises of a half marathon run, 10K, 5K, 1K and the half marathon walk so there is really no excuse not to take part. Alison Groat and Kirsteen Kellock took part with several of the Dumfries Harriers and Kirsteen reports as follows...

"The route is a picturesque one with views of the sea but certainly is undulating (Kirsteen has now learned runners speak for very hilly). The main challenge is the strong wind which in the half marathon is a headwind for the first 6 miles. This is followed by a sandy track over the sand dunes at mile 7 which can be energy sapping for tiring legs.

Alison Groat, despite joining in the islands hospitality for several hours the day before, managed a good time of 1hr 51 mins and finished 36th out of 90 . She was surprised and delighted with her time due to her pre-race training at the Coll Hotel  and she even managed a whisky at one of the water stations. We are not sure if the pre-hydration was a form of “sabotage” by the Dumfries Harriers.

Unfortunately, due to illness (not related to the hospitality), Kirsteen Kellock  had to change from the half  marathon to the 10K on the day. Again, as it followed the half marathon, the route was UNDULATING. She was delighted to finish in 50mins 23secs and was 3rd fastest lady being 11th overall. This was a new PB for her which was a consolation given the fact she was unable to do the half. Keeping things in the family her daughters Heather (5yrs) and Iona (3yrs) were the 2nd and 3rd girls in the 1km event. Both were delighted to get a trophy!"
