Derwentwater 10 Miles

09/11/2016

The Derwentwater 10 mile road race is a very popular fixture in the lcoal running calendar, and this year (the 57th edition) was no exception with all 500 places selling out well before the event.

It was a fixture in Dumfries Running Club's Grand Prix and so 7 members faced the wintry conditions - pre race icy rain and mid race freezing conditions - on the day. Last year's route was reported to be a few hundred metres short and so to right this error and make up for an altered start (so avoiding congestion with busy shoppers) an extra loop was added into the race at the 6.5mile mark. This meant there was a bit of extra climbing and descent, and happened to coincide with some sheep dog trials, which also added to the fun and games for the runners.

First home for the club was Joasia Zakrzewski, winning the ladies' race in a time of 63:01, though she did find the conditions rather at odds with her run in Portugal the previous weekend. Not far behind was Alan Baxter in 64:27, who ran a conservative race, knowing he was down on his usual level of fitness. Sandy Shankland, still struggling with an ongoing Achilles injury, ran very cautiously for the first half, picking the pace up a little in the second 5 miles to finish in a conservative 77:01, Anne Macfarlane also ran a quicker second half and came in at 79:31; Richard Pagan was next, running steadily to a time of 84:30 followed closely by Mark Hall, still working his way back after injury, in 85:14. Sean McGleenan kept a steady pace throughout and finished strongly in 96:14
