Newcastle Town Moor Marathon

02/11/2014

Sandy Shankland was the sole Dumfries Running Club member to take part in the Newcastle Town Moor marathon on Sunday 2nd November...

This is a low key event organised by the North East Marathon Club, a group of marathon enthusiasts in the Newcastle area. The race is five laps, each of approximately 5.25 miles, round a course over Town Moor, a large area of common ground in Newcastle.

It was a pleasant dry autumn day with a blustery wind that hindered progress in the exposed sections. Sandy started cautiously and steadily worked his way up the field over the first lap to take him to just outside the top ten places. For the next two laps he had to keep focused as he was left running on his own. During the fourth lap he managed to overtake two runners to take him into the top ten places.

Sandy managed to hold on over the final lap to finish in 9th place overall in a time of 3:11:18; in doing so he won the Vet 55 age group category.
