Sport in Action 10k

29/08/2017

Four Dumfries Running Club members headed to Carlisle on Sunday, 27th August, to do the Sport In Action 10K. They were Kim Adamson, Lisa Finlay, Franc Karpo and Les Hill.

The route was an undulating one that was mainly on quiet roads or tarred parkland paths but also had a 1.5 mile section on the Brampton to Carlisle road after passing through the pretty hamlet of Linstock. Despite the undulations all four enjoyed the well organised event.

Lisa was just ahead of the English international fell runner, Catherine Spurden of Keswick AC, after the first kilometre and had to work hard for the duration of the race to stay there and win the ladies event by just 19 seconds in a time of 37.39 which is just slower than 6 minute mile pace. Only seven men finished ahead of Lisa that shows what a terrific run she had.

Franc and Les both set off at a steady pace. Franc was ahead of Les and tucked in at the rear of a group of ten runners until he reached the short climb, over the motorway, before half way. At that point he pulled out and moved ahead of the group and on the second climb back in to Carlisle he consolidated his position to finish strongly with a time of 41.28 and win the prize for first V60 .

Les also had a strong performance in the second half during which he gained a handful of places to record a satisfying time of 42.08

Kim Adamson only decided late the previous night to go to the race and was pleased she did and really enjoyed the route. Despite not having trained much recently and having done no running at all in the last two weeks she had a solid run and was happy with her time of 69.05 and even happier when she saw the tray bakes on offer just after the finish.
