Brampton to Carlisle

22/11/2017

This race, now in its 66th year, is one of the classic distance races and has always attracted a high calibre field eager to test themselves against the best runners from Central Scotland and the North of England. 

Last Sunday 25 Dumfries Running Club members joined the smaller than usual field of 581 at the William Howard school in Brampton for the 11.30am start.

On a beautiful crisp clear day it was positive conditions for the runners but in a few shady places black ice was an additional hazard that added a slight degree of slippiness. The low key start caught a few runners unawares and several of the elite runners were blocked in during the early stages. The race was won by Robert Danson of Wesham in 50.06 with only fourteen seconds separating the top 5 in the field.

The fastest Dumfries Running Club member was Alan Baxter who was delighted to get under the hour in 59.23 in 53rd place with Kevin McQueen having an excellent run in 60.07, ten seconds in front of Colin Holden with Niall Campbell two strides adrift. Alan, Kevin and Colin won the prize as second vets team overall. Kevin McCaig also had a very good run in 60.29 as first vet 55. Despite being impeded at the start, Lisa Finlay came through strongly as  first vet 45 woman in 62.05 and Simon Mortlock was pleased with his time of 64.46. 

Ranjit Thomas came through very strongly in the tougher second half of the course in 67.03 and headed off Les Hill by 22 seconds while Stuart Gillespie and Sian Finlay were pleased to finish under the seven minute mile mark in 68.51 and 69.30 respectively. Mike Jardine maintained his recent good form in 71.20, a minute ahead of fast finishing David Burns and Brian Mohan in 72.44 was over a minute ahead of his brother Stephen. Anne Macfarlane was pleased with her strong run in 74.41 which helped the team of herself, Lisa and Sian to win the prize as first vet women and second female team overall. 

Female club captain Sue Jeffrey had a good run in 77.12, two minutes in front of Neil Moffat and Hamish Macdonald in 84.48 was two minutes in front of Mark Johnston in his first club race for many months. Sean McGleenan was over 2 minutes up on last year in 90.22, thirty seconds in front of Fiona Jardine and in her debut on the course Karen Scott was pleased with her run in 91.55 a minute and a half in front of Skye Sarahs and Donald Anson was pleased to be thirty seconds faster than last year in 99.28.
