The Greenmantle Dash, Broughton

02/01/2015

Six Club members joined the large field in the ever popular Greenmantle dash at Broughton village near to Biggar on Friday January 2nd...

Starting in driving sleet, this challenging 3.3km sprint, which included obstacles such as hurdling a wall (optional), crossing a small but swollen river (not optional) and an ankle deep marshy field followed by the steep 200m climb to the summit marker. After the leg-trembling climb, runners were rewarded with a rapid and slippery descent to the final stretch on tarmac and then along to the finish where the Broughton Brewery provided each runner with a well-earned free pint.

The fastest DRC runner was James Kellock who was 49th in 22.39 and he was well clear of Mo Khan and Sue Jeffrey who raced each other over the whole route with Mo in 25.47 finishing 10 seconds clear. Stephen Mohan showed his inexperience in these types of races by getting to the summit ahead of Mo and Sue but was well beaten in the downhill to finish in 26.43. Kerry Walker had an excellent run in 29.31 especially as she had just come off a night shift and new club member Lynn Grieve marked her debut in 30.51.

The trio of Lynn, Kerry and Sue stood a strong chance of winning the first female team prize of bottles of local beer had it been on offer. Ian Anderson of Dumfries Harriers ran well also to finish in 31.55.
