Nairn 10 Miles Race 2016

08/06/2016

Sunday 5th June was the Nairn 10 mile road race and club members Sean McGleenan and Anne Macfarlane were in the area for the weekend. 

The weather was glorious and was perfect for sunbathing but a bit of a challenge for a 10 mile run and the start time of 2pm meant running through the hottest part of the day. Starting on the main street, the first 2 miles were through pleasant leafy lanes into farmland around the town, looped around in a 4 mile figure of eight then returned into the town centre. It was described by the race organisers as 'undulating', which can mean anything from almost flat to steep hills, in this case somewhere in the middle.


The baking heat made the hills seem even tougher, but both Sean and Anne were pleased with their own performance, giving a good run for their money to those around them and fighting hard for their places. Anne finished in 1:20:22 and Sean in 1:31:27.
