Stirling 10K

12/09/2016

On Sunday 11th September 5 members of Dumfries Running Club made the journey to Stirling to take part in the 10K race.

The central location of the race and the promise of a fast flat course regularly attracts up to 1000 entries.

Conditions on the day were cool and dry for the runners and spectators with the course taking runners out on a there and back route. The start was very congested and chip timing was in use to ensure everyone got an accurate time for when they crossed the start line.

After the start from the Stirling Sports Village, the route passed through the flat roads/paths of an industrial estate before skirting the loops of the River Forth. It then crossed the river before a long road and tarmac path section which had a deceptive gradual rise. A traffic cone at roughly the half-way point was the turning point back to the finish.

The quality of the field can be judged by the fact that the first 60 runners all broke the 35 minute mark with first home being Kristian Jones of Swansea Harriers in 30.24.

The first Dumfries Running Club finisher was Kevin McQueen in a time of 36.37 and he was closely followed by Niall Campbell in 37.01. David Burns was next in 43.21 and less than a minute later Anne McFarlane finished in 44.18 which earned her a Gold Standard time. Sean McGleenan finished in 53.48. Special mention to Anne’s niece and sister who were taking part in their 3rd ever 10k race  after completing the Mabie Trail and Doonhamer races.

A goodie bag and technical t-shirt were the reward for everyone at the end.

Good race for a fast 10k time but not a very picturesque route. The there and back nature of the course means that unless you’re the leader, you will get to see a lot of people coming back before you’ve got to half-way point.
