Langholm Trail 10k

29/06/2017

14 members of Dumfries Running Club travelled to Langholm on the 17th of June for the 10th race in the club's Grand Prix series, the  Muckletoon Adventure Festival 10k race.

It was a beautiful sunny day and the race didn't start until 1pm, by which time the heat was strong enough to make life difficult for runners! The 10k follows a very attractive route along roads and paths, through woods and over hills with breathtaking views. Some stiff climbs and steep descents on stony, often winding, paths added to the challenge.

Five club members won prizes; Alan Baxter was second male in 43:31; Lisa Finlay close behind as first female in 43:44 and Jo Zakzrewski first female veteran 40 in 44:11. Sandy Shankland was first male veteran 60 in 50:58 and Les Hill first male veteran 50 in 51:12.

Nicola Hood had a brave run despite suffering in the heat, finishing alongside Niall Campbell in just over 45 mins. Mike Jardine ran well in 52:45, followed by Anne Macfarlane in 56:05 and Sue Jeffrey in 58:30. Next was Saty Burns in 66:52 and Fiona Jardine in 67:06, with Carol Graham finishing in 68:44 alongside Victoria Graham on her debut 10k.

Ranjit Thomas was the sole club member in the Half Marathon, and he finished in 2:05:11.
