The Moffat 15k Race

13/07/2018

The Moffat 15k Race is always a popular target for many members of Dumfries Running Club and a superb turnout of 30 joined the field of 160 for the event on Tuesday evening. 

Effectively the race is split into three separate parts with the first section a relatively easy 4 miles followed by a 200 metre climb within a mile at the Devil’s Beeftub with the reward for tired runners a 4 mile downhill run back to the Ram at Moffat. Whilst the sun was not shining as much as recently it was a warm and muggy evening which provided challenging conditions. The fastest runner who gained maximum points in this leg of the club grand prix series was Alan Baxter who was tenth overall in 61.06 three places ahead of Kevin McCaig in 61.46.

Simon Mortlock ran strongly in 64.56 and was almost a minute in front of both Adam Dickie and Ranjit Thomas who finished a few strides apart. Sian Finlay ran well in 67.36 in 35th place overall, thirty seconds in front of Joe Malone. In 69.33 Mike Jardine was 100 metres  in front of Michael McKean and Stephen Mohan in 71.20 was 15 seconds in front of fast finishing Ian Anderson. Hazel Smyth in 72.35 was a minute in front of Sue Jeffrey and Neil Moffat was delighted with his run in 75.25.

In 82.49 James Brash finished narrowly in front of Hamish Macdonald and Emma Luebke in 84.59 was twenty metres ahead of Craig Kerr and Alice McPherson in 86mins was two seconds in front of Fiona Jardine with newcomer Amy Lucas just over a minute behind. Saty Burns in 89.26 found the downhill section of the course to be challenging and was narrowly in front of Richard McDougal. Encouraging others as usual, Margaret Gray in 95.41 ran together with Louise Craig, Rab Wilson and Trish Murphy all of whom finished within a few minutes of her and Margaret Laurie, Claire Campbell and Susan Gallagher, in her first race for many months, were pleased to complete the course on a day when the conditions meant that many were slightly down on their times from previous years.
