Scottish National Road Relay Championships

29/03/2017

Last Sunday, after a gap of several years, a Dumfries Running Club team took part in the Scottish national road relay championships at Livingston. 

This event has over 160 teams and the very fastest of Scotland’s male and female runners were represented. Each team had a short leg runner who covered 5k with almost double that distance for the long leg runners on a twisting undulating route. Whilst the majority of male teams covered six legs, the DRC team were in the mature category and had to only cover 4 stages but were fully aware that of the dauntingly high standard of the event.

Les Hill led off and despite lacking race fitness due to recent injury, ran well in the mass start to complete his leg in 21.33 before handing over to Stephen Mohan who tried hard but found the warm conditions to be tough and crossed the line in 43.59. David Burns ran strongly in 21.43 on his leg and handed over to Brian Mohan who had an excellent run in 40.03 bringing the team home in 62nd place overall. Thanks are due to Joasia Zakrzewski for her on course marshalling and Sheila Graham for team support.
