The Great Scottish Run

04/10/2017

15 Dumfries Running Club members last Sunday morning took part in either the half marathon or 10k in Glasgow which was given 3 hours of live coverage on the BBC as Scotland’s biggest festival of running. 

Starting at George Square in the city centre the conditions were not favourable with wind and driving rain which added to the difficulty. With over 10,000 entrants the half marathon showcased the city with a run through both Pollok estate and Bellahouston park and the final mile along the Clyde attracted thousands of spectators who supported even the most exhausted competitors.

Kevin Conchar was the fastest club runner and he stuck to his pre-race plan of 6min 15seconds a mile in the early sections but the driving rain slowed him down slightly but he was pleased to cross the line in 83.53 in 174th place. Anne Macfarlane had a very strong run in a few seconds over 100mins and Neil Moffat did well in 105mins. Sheila Graham and Stephen Mohan ran in 115mins, three minutes ahead of Hamish Macdonald. Sean McGleenan did well in 124mins three minutes ahead of Laura Broatch and Jody Dempster. In her longest ever club race Rhiannon Breed rose to the challenge to cross the line in under 2 hours 30 mins and Sid Oates ran his first club race of the year and was delighted to complete the distance.

In the 10k earlier in the morning Niall Campbell joined 11,000 others in the 10k which covered both banks of the Clyde and passed many landmarks including the BBC itself and the Glasgow Hydro. Niall was delighted to complete the course in 37th place in 36.02, four seconds faster than last year. Franc Karpo was disappointed by his own high standards in 42.12 but was pleased to be able to get back to racing after a layoff. Friends Julie Corbett and Susan Ball were able to benefit from the structured training on Monday evenings and were delighted to cross the line together in 62mins.
