Dentdale 2018

15/03/2018

Last Saturday 14 members of Dumfries Running Club travelled to the Yorkshire Dales national park for the 14.1mile Dentdale race which has been a popular yet very challenging event. 

This was the second event in the 2018 DRC Grand Prix series. With over 400 taking part this year the Dentdale race has more than its fair share of tough climbs in its uneven terrain and it is perfect for anyone who is training for early season marathons. The post race tea and sandwiches along with a welcome pint of the local Dent beer are a definite bonus too. This year a shorter 7.9 mile event was introduced and with over 200 in that, the early stages of both races were rather congested as runners made their way through the narrow and steep country roads.

The first back from the club was Charlie Storrie in 20th place in 93.01 closely followed by Kevin McCaig who was first vet 55 in 94.12 and he was two places and thirty seconds in front of first woman Lisa Finlay. Club Chairman, Sandy Shankland, in full training for next month’s London marathon, was pleased with his run in 101.54 two hundred metres in front of Simon Mortlock. Sian Finlay in 106mins was second vet 45 and found the final stretches of the course to be especially challenging. In the first part of a double header in preparation for upcoming ultras David Burns ran carefully in 127mins. Alice Mcpherson and Laura Broatch finished in 2hours 13 and 2 hours 16 respectively. Fiona Jardine, Saty Burns and Bob Quin also ran much of the way together with future races in mind and were pleased to finish. Fiona in 2 hours 22 was a couple of minutes in front of both Saty in 2 hours 24, and Bob in 2 hours 27. In the shorter 7.9 mile event Allan Manson dipped under the hour by 24 seconds in 15th place and Andy Dickson was pleased to finish in 81.03.
