Scottish Half Marathon

06/09/2014

Saturday 6th September was the date set for the inaugural Scottish Half Marathon, which started just outside Edinburgh at Meadowmill Sports Centre and finished at Musselburgh Racecourse. Dumfries Running Club's Susan Callendar was amongst those keen to check out this new event...

The route was billed as "seriously flat and rapid", a description Susan agreed with, and there were several points of interest along the way. Runners hit the coast at Longniddry Bents, a popular beach with the remains of World War II defences along it, and then ran the next 6 miles along the beautiful John Muir Way, passing the site of the Battle of Prestonpans along the way. The final mile took them along Musselburgh Links (the oldest golf course in the world) before they were treated to a grandstand finish at the Racecourse. 

The race was won by Bryan Mackie of Edinburgh AC in 71:22 with Helen Bonsor of Carnethy taking the ladies' title in 86:13. Although it was by far the furthest that Susan had run in 2 years, she found conditions almost perfect and so was very happy with her time of 2:04:29 which put her 11th in her age category. She found the race well organised (avoiding other people's carpark exit traffic jams by parking on the road) and would recommend next year's event for other runners keen to chase a PB.......and for those interested in a decent goodie bag!
