Carlisle Urban Trail

24/05/2017

Last Wednesday May 17th 24 Dumfries Running Club members turned out for the third Carlisle urban trail 10k race. 

Despite the prompt departure for the 7.15pm start, the club had the largest turnout of runners for what was a counter in the 2017 trail and hill grand prix series. Despite lacking any climbs over five metres the route covered both banks of the River Eden on trails that sapped energy especially from those unfamiliar with trail running.

The fastest club runner was Nicola Hood who had an outstanding run as first woman in 8th place out of the 250 finishers in 37.26, fifteen seconds ahead of Niall Campbell. Kevin McCaig had a typically strong run as first male over 50 in 40.25, a minute ahead of Simon Mortlock with Sandy Shankland as first male over 60 in 41.35. Stuart Gillespie ran well in 44.05, sixty metres ahead of a strong run from Mike Jardine with Les Hill close behind.

In a three way push for the line club captain Sue Jeffrey in 46.34 headed off Mark Hall and Anne Macfarlane by three and six seconds respectively and Anne won the prize as first female over 50. Neil Moffat in 47.02 finished a hundred metres in front of Craig Kerr and Skye Sarahs felt she showed good drive and determination to finish well ahead of her 2016 time in 50.39. Fiona Jardine in 53.43 was narrowly in front of John Galloway with Saty Burns in 55.12 helping and encouraging Laura Broatch and Jody Dempster who ran together in 55.57. One very encouraging aspect of this race is that it is an entry point for those less familiar with trail running. Sean McGleenan in 58.34 was just in front of newcomer Jennifer Ross with Claire Campbell in close attention. On her debut club trail race Mhairi Davidson was cheered over the line by her clubmates having thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
