Brampton to Carlisle 2016

23/11/2016

This race, now in its 65th year, is one of the classic distance races and has always attracted a high calibre field eager to test themselves against the best runners from Central Scotland and the North of England. Last Sunday 20 Dumfries Running Club members joined the 680 at the William Howard school in Brampton for the 11.30am start.

On a beautiful crisp clear day it was positive conditions for the runners but in a few shady places black ice was an additional hazard that added an extra degree of slippiness. The race was doubling as the 2016 club championship race and this added an extra competitive edge for several club members. The fastest competitor was Niall Campbell in 43rd place in 58.30 who was the male club champion almost a minute in front of Richard Beck. The female club champion was Jo Zakrzewski in 59.30 and she was the first vet 40 and 3rd female overall.

Charlie Storrie had an excellent run in 61.10 and alongside his sub 3 hour marathon at Loch Ness in October, outlined his potential. Frustratingly, he was four seconds away from being the fastest junior runner in the race. Kevin McCaig in 63.44 was initially disappointed in his time but quickly realised that finishing as third vet 55 in a high calibre field was a very good achievement.

Les Hill had a superb run in 65mins, running much of the way with former club chairman Ian Brown now running for Tynedale. Franc Karpo was pleased with his debut run on the course in 67.22, three minutes in front of Allan Manson. Stephen Mohan in 73.47 was thirty seconds in front of Anne Macfarlane who had an excellent gold standard run and was the 2nd vet 50 in the race. Richard Pagan in 79.04 was pleased to run much of the way with Mark Johnston and Mark Hall was encouraged to finish only sixty seconds adrift.

Margaret Gray ran a strong race in 88.39 using her experience gained from recent ultra runs and she was four minutes ahead of Sean McGleenan with Rab Wilson in 95.24 helping Donald Anson on his longest race of the year in 97.16. After last week’s showing at the New York marathon, Fiona Jardine understandably ran more carefully along with her daughter Kerry both finished in 98.29. On her first club race since this year’s London marathon Joyce Hamilton enjoyed her run and will hopefully be able to take part in many more races in the near future.
